Thread: linux to unix

  1. linux to unix

    Hi,
    We've SCO Unix installed on our servers. I don't know much about the
    servers, becuase I only can login and use my applications. Currently,
    we are using windows clients with Smarterm
    (http://www.svamsoftware.com/newsvam2...rm/default.asp) and RPM
    (remote printing manager - http://www.brooksnet.com). Are there any
    alternatives for these 2 applications on linux. If there are any
    alternatives, kindly tell me. So, we can migrate our clients to linux.

    thanks,
    Hameed U. Khan

    Run infocmp on Linux and move the result to the SCO box and use
    tic to compile it.

    I have been working with DSL (Damn Small Linux) booting from CD on
    diskless pc's to access RealWorld Accounting application on SCO UNIX
    5.0.5. I want to run telnet from DSL to the SCO box (not X-windows),
    log in and run the RealWorld accounting system. This is still under
    development but I have had some success by creating a Linux.src
    terminfo entry and a RWCONFIG.linux definition for Real World.

    Everything works, function keys, page up, page down,
    etc... EXCEPT the Linux delete and "back space." This is hard
    coded into Linux and using telnet from the DSL box to the SCO box
    I have not been able to transmit SCO compatible delete and back
    space from the Linux system. I expect that you would have the
    same problem with out a true terminal emulator.

    I have downloaded and installed test version of Century software's
    TERM for Linux but I did not like the results - I have not worked on
    this project for several months and can't give you specifics on the
    problem with TERM. Power Term has a program that runs in X-windows only
    that you might like (not CLI so I rejected it for this client).

    You really don't want to run telnet over the Internet do you?

    Surely you meant to say ssh.

    No, in this case this is telnet across local LAN. DSL above is
    not Digital Subscriber Line but Damn Small Linux. And this project
    has been put on hold. The client has a new marketing manager that
    is planning to move from RealWorld Sales Marketing on UNIX to
    ACT! running on Windows XP. Go figure.

    FYI to K.I.S.S we use PuTTY to access filePro on a KDE console of a freeBSD box.
    It works great with full color and function key support. PuTTY's -load "setting"
    works great.

    In keeping with K.I.S.S: I seek to ELIMINATE MS Windows and boot DSL (damn small
    Linux) from CD and have three telnet sessions (one one each linux console
    screen (F1, F2, F3) start automatically. PuTTY is Windows program - Yes?

    This replaces dumb terminal on serial ports board with TCP telnet with cheep,
    diskless PC.

    We first did something similar almost ten years ago, booting
    diskless stations running Caldera OpenLinux 1.2 or so with the
    boot images and file systems living on an SCO OpenServer box.

    I prefer running an X11 desktop though, using xterms to log into
    the server since I find it far easier to read dark text on a
    light background than the normal console display. It also allows
    one to have multiple xterm sessions either using the multi-pane
    features of KDE or on the same screen. We use ssh to connect to
    the servers as that eliminates all the hassle of dealing with the
    DISPLAY and xhosts.

    Uh, no...
    google for putty-0.58.tar.gz or
    http://the.earth.li/~sgtatham/putty/...ty-0.58.tar.gz

    If you have a character based application like filePro, it allows you to set
    things up identical with either client OS.

    I've ran it on DSL Linux and on FreeBSD it's in the ports collection, so it's a
    matter of seconds to get it installed.

    Users know to click on the PuTTy icon, and that's all they have to know.
