This may be a bit too new for this list but I thought what the heck - maybe
one of you Compaq/DEC/HP guys would know:
Is there any reason a Smart Array controller can't be used as a simple SCSI
controller? I.E. No array, just using it to drive a tape library? TIA!
In theory console can be set to anything but its usually 9600/8/n/1 as I?m sure you?ve tried.
On some suns unplugging the serial cable is the equivalent of sending a break, so might be worth a try?
Suns do require full hardware signalling on the console connection so might be worth checking.
I?ve used Teraterm to receive and save binary paper tapes and ASCII paper tapes to files using the log function without any problem. When you say receive ?into an ASCII file,? what is the ASCII requirement you?re trying to satisfy? What is on the tape - text or binary data?
Hi, Warren. We've spoken a few times through the decades, but a have a
friend with a delightful relic of PC Unix history: the original 286 UNIX
port, well before SCO with Xenix.
Bela is in Mountain View, CA so he's on the wrong continent for you, but I
figured you might know of an appropriate home for this.
Thanks for all you've done to preserve UNIX.

As an old MCP user/developer (although outside the lab), that's really
interesting to me!
Note: you have to register to get the software. That's apparently
done by clicking on "Downloads". Then you're presented with a
registration form. After submitting it, you're told you'll receive an
Don't hold your breath.
It's been 20 minutes, and no email from Unisys :(
(And, no email --> no download)
It'll be going into an epoxy resin setup that someone I know is doing for a
table, and I really want to get something that still LOOKS OK but is...
well, just faulty and won't be restorable to service so we don't destroy
any potentially usable hardware.

Hi - I read on teraterm's forum or something like it that teraterm is not
really equipped to receive an inbound papertape reader dump into an ascii
file. What do those of you who have both windows and a tape reader use?
RealTerm? If so, what settings? I have been wresting with this for a
while...I am told my DSI NC 2400 needs hardware flow control
