Oooops, no ! Bad typo, this was in fact an RM400 ! We have a MX300 case here
that holds our ftp sevrer (386DX40 running Linux ...), so I got confused ...

So far, this looks like an old SCO Unix version with TCP/IP ;)

Oops, I _hate_ german error messages. Solaris drives me crazy with those ...

OK, now I know I'll refuse the offer to get a free MX2 I got some weeks ago ;)

Hmmm, this all reminds me of our old TI S1500. This machine is a multi-
processor 68030/040 system with a mixture of SVR2 and SVR3 Unix. Once, Texas
Instruments decided they needed TCP/IP for their system. They forgot to :
- include NFS :(
- include a lpr client
- include a lpr server
(and I wasn't able to compile either ...)
The netstat command is called tcpstat and the whole thing drives me crazy
sometimes :) But - if it runs, it runs _very_ reliably. I regularly get
months of uptimes on these machines ...
