For automated install users, it's nice to provide a command line version of install that expects no user feedback in any form. Usually this is trivial for the developer to do.

I just did this myself.

Get Weasel and the extra tool qmail. Qmail.cmd is a rexx script to send e-mails. It uses Weasel to actually send. I'm also using STunnel to do the SSL because my ISP requires secure e-mail.

This is regarding the 4/4 version of Firefox. I'll get up to testing the more recent build shortly.

Firefox does not seem to start by itself. If I put firefox into Internet Application Integration so that I can launch web URL objects, or open a web page from Thunderbird, that does not work until I install Run!

The bitwise port starts without any help from Run!

It is also possible to add our own branding directory here and have our own browser, something to consider as we change the code.

Can we call it Web Explorer?  :)

Setup & Installation / Re: ArcaOS fix for Windows seamless problem ?

I think the problems are way more complex than are pictured here. Roderick gives a hint about video and virtual dos machines, but there are a lot of moving parts. On my machine WinOS2 windowed session appears to work perfectly. I have ArcaOS 5.0.3 plus some upgrades.

I have a nice web page describing the process for a W500. It's nice to know it would work on a T420.

I have no problem switching back and forth for WiFi and wired. I do find that to do that well, it has to start on wired.

 Does the BIOS on the T420 complain about a foreign adapter? There was no such complaint about the W500, but the W500 was available new with a 5100.

I only see mozalloc.dll in the Firefox 38 directory. It shouldn't have loaded. And normally there is no error. There was just the one time, I noticed the tbturbo had not started and a looked in POPUPLOG.OS2 and saw an error at the same time.

I put both ffturbo and tbturbo in my startup folder. Usually no problem. Just now, I saw this happen at startup.

I find the AC750 and the others on my Travel Routers web page all fail on captive portals. Captive portals are mostly obsolete, but there are still quite a few of them operating.

I've documented a few WiFi travel routers here

My favorite so far is the same as Ivan, the TP LInk AC 750.

It works here in Firefox45. How do they do that?

I'm not a gamer at all, but I was interested in what people are doing outside the OS/2 community. Here is a DOS gaming site that I thought could be pretty helpful to us.

It lists the DOS games freely available on the Internet ranked by popularity.

Hardware / Re: AS400 and IBM Access Client Solution (ACS)
« on: February 05, 2019, 02:06:00 am »
Thanks for your comment. I went to Google and found IBM i Access Client Solutions (32-bit) Version: Build id: 5492. This seems to start and I am able to connect to the iSeries with a 5250 emulator.

I am looking to enable SSL, but I think something is missing on the host.


Hardware / AS400 and IBM Access Client Solution (ACS)
« on: February 04, 2019, 03:47:49 pm »
I've got a Affirmative Unicomp 1225T 5250 Model M 122-Key PS2 Buckling Spring Keyboard (See attachment for picture)

I had to hook it to the computer using a Belkin USB adapter. It seems to work. Is there anything I need to do to have the system recognize all 122 keys? I have ArcaOS 5.0.3 running, and the last version of Personal Communications.

I'm trying to support Access to an AS400.
Neil still using that old piece of shit? Is that a very old AS400 customer? Or does he have a later >=V7R1 release? If so i strongly suggest to use IBM i Access Client Solution (ACS in short). It's written in Java and works like a charm. I use it daily, as thats my main development job


This didn't go anywhere for me until now. The customer just upgraded his very old AS400. Now I should be able to use ACS. I have downloaded a copy of Access Client Solution, but I don't see how to start it using OS/2. Do you use a command file or something? I tried starting from command line:

I'm also experiencing some DOS windows session issue.  Look at the attached image  and see if it looks familiar.
Any help is welcome.


This item from the eComStation quick guide might help:

Code: [Select]
Q: When I try to start a DOS or Win16 window, I get a popup message saying that the
video mode is not supported. What do I do?
A: You can try two things:
1. Edit your CONFIG.SYS file and locate the line which loads VSVGA.SYS. Add
the following switch to the end of the line:
You may also need to edit AUTOEXEC.BAT and add the following lines to the
end of the file:
mode co80
2. If solution 1 does not work, try changing the name of the VSVGA.SYS driver in
CONFIG.SYS to “VVGA.SYS” instead.

Also, many of us have seen this kind of problem fixed by ACPI 3.23.10.

Finally, if neither work, try older hardware.
