Plus, it's sound enough tasks... :-) Helping making our current network stack working is the top priority. There's a userland version of this stack. It allow us to run it hosted by an userland app. You'll learn more about it here: //www.freelists.org/archives/openbeosnetteam/10-2003/msg00042.html And here : //www.freelists.org/archives/openbeosnetteam/10-2003/msg00058.html Note that it's not up-to-date version, and you may want to replace parts by newers built from our CVS. The route and traceroute don't work yet, and I suspect that because they can't open route sockets. Mostly because we don't have the old/pre-newtree move route module checked-in. - Philippe -- Fortune Cookie Says: When does summertime come to Minnesota, you ask?
