Its been fun? working with Ultrix-11 and have had success with the help
of the list.? Thanks.? The tape file from Bill Gunshannon will create a
working system.? Yay!
I'm at the point of trying to network the SIMH pdp11 Ultrix-11 system.
I have a few observations:
1. The youtube video 'Ultrix-11' shows connecting to sunOS systems. OK,
he did this by simply issuing a single ifconfig command.? That didn't
work for me.
2. Instead, I used the netsetup script supplied with the system, and had
to reboot to get networking up.? I did seem to come up OK.
3. The SIMH FAQ suggests using a 2nd ethernet port, I was able to do
this.? The linux computer I am running SIMH on has 2 ports.
4. The Ultrix-11 telnet ftp are old, unsecure versions, how do you
connect to a modern Linux machine?? The Linux machines refuse the
5. I also looked at the tuhs archive.? The Fred build script that
generates a tk50 bootable tape image didn't work for me.? I substituted
a file for the tape device and it caused SIMH to Halt.
