Hi

There are these three files that I guess are somewhat related. os2nosv4.zip, pmnos11x.zip, pmnos1dx.zip. Those are ports of KA9Q NOS, according to wikipedia "KA9Q, also called KA9Q NOS or simply NOS, was a popular early implementation of TCP/IP and associated protocols for amateur packet radio systems and smaller personal computers connected via serial lines."

I have no idea exactly how it works. Is it a full TCP/IP implementation, or is only for serial communication? What about the amateur packet radio systems part?
I still don't get what the software does.

I think it enabled connecting a radio to the computer via serial line and then doing TCPIP over the link. So with no wired (or regular wireless) internet, you could have a slow connection over shortwave or which ever amateur frequencies where the licensing allowed.
So, I' assume a full TCP/IP implementation operating wirelessly over an amateur band.
Maybe put it in the same place as PPP, SLURP etc programs go

Thanks for the continuos feedback.

Also, I found some rexx scripts for "text filtering" and/or "string search" that I'm not sure where to put.
Like rxmulch2.zip, quotword.zip, rxedit03.zip, textfilt.zip

Everything is on "/pub/os2/dev/rexx" but I think it can be improved. Maybe no "dev/tools/???"

Any suggestion on how the "????" directory should be named?
