Applications / 3270
« on: April 29, 2024, 06:33:26 am »
What is the last version of IBM's Personal Communications (aka PCOMM) software for OS/2?
Or alternatively do you recommend another 3270/5250 terminal emulator (on OS/2)?

Thank you for reading!

Programming / fatal error: sys/cdefs.h: No such file or directory
« on: March 12, 2024, 12:36:12 am »
Do you know which package is needed to add the missing header files? This is the gcc from netlabs-rel (9.2.0-4.oc00)
Thank you!

Storage / Boot from iscsi or fiber channel
« on: February 12, 2024, 07:28:11 am »
I would like to have a diskless ArcaOS (or Warp 4, but preferably ArcaOS) machine. For that I would like to boot and run diskless from iSCSI or Fiber Channel or FCoE (Fiberchannel over Ethernet.)

Either way it will be booting from a Netapp filter.

It's just much more convenient for us, as it allows us to take filesystem snapshots, replicate storage remotely; and it gets automatically backed up; plus naturally, it's a very reliable SAN underneath with parity; and finally, it's more "aligned" with how we run things around here.

The initial OS installation can be done to Virtualbox (because I don't think you can readily install to FC or iSCSI), then the contents of the disk *could* be moved (more precisely dd if=virtualboxdisk.raw of=/dev/remoteblockdevice bs=512 or something like that) to the SAN block device, but I'm not certain how things would boot (ECSBOOT.COM?); naturally, I could use a Qlogic HBA with iSCSI boot support (sometimes they do that for windows or AIX) but I'm not sure if that was ever attempted for OS/2; although, because it's a fairly common way to do things in large organizations i would be surprised to hear that it was never done with OS/2.

GOALS: Note that I don't want to boot or run diskless os/2 from os/2 (or ecomstation or another operating system) or run os/2 "virtualized" here; the goal is to boot and run os/2 from a machine with no disk. So please refrain asking "why would you do this", "use a raid controller", "use reliable drives", etc. Finally, the GOAL is not to simply boot, but have the block device exposed over network or fiber channel; or basically run "diskless" via iscsi/FCoE or fiber channel.

Quick search on Google didn't show anything extremely useful (which hardware to use, which HBAs are supported etc) or how to accomplish this, so I'm turning to the community for ideas and pointers.

Thanks in advance -- J.

Applications / telnetd
« on: October 22, 2020, 11:25:24 pm »
I've activated telnetd on ArcaOS 5.0.2, it runs from telnetd, I've created a few users with klUsrMgr; but none of them can be authenticated ("login failed") do you know how to create users for telnetd to auth against?

Applications / openssh-server on ArcaOS
« on: October 22, 2020, 01:56:42 am »
I've installed openssh-server on ArcaOS 5.0.2 (yum install openssh-server) but it doesn't appear that the port 22 is open, does anyone has further instructions on how to configure openssh-server, I've looked through other threads, but didn't find this info.

Note I also have openssh-client installed.

Applications / Installing win16 applications
« on: October 20, 2020, 05:51:47 pm »
I have a laptop with ArcaOS 5.0.5; installing any win16 application led to an "Invalid path ..." popup error. I'm not sure if this is due to HPFS, or anything else I should do. Does this sound familiar? Thanks for reading!

Setup & Installation / "Remote Desktop"
« on: June 05, 2013, 07:00:29 pm »

I would like to setup eComStation as a virtual machine, where "clients" would "remote desktop" to, as such, I imagine it would be a multi-user environment, and I'm not sure if this is either possible or how to achieve this? Would there be any pointers to documentation on how-to?

The "clients" would be unix machines, mostly linux; no windows.
