First release of MorphOS native TCP/IP released
« on: September 14, 2005, 05:44:41 PM »
And now, as i promised, I present to you a very-very-very first version of my work.

Note: these are just barebones. No GUI yet. It will be there, but a little later, currently I'm focused at kernel functoinality and DHCP client. So you are expected to have some knowledge about setting up a network.

1. Unpack the archive to SYS:.
2. Edit file S:startnet, replacing sample values with your IP, netmask and default gateway.
3. Edit file S:netdb/interfaces (current one is okay for most of Pegasos users, but check it).
4. Edit file S:netdb/resolv.conf, specify your DNS and local domain there.
5. Edit file S:netdb/hosts, specify a mapping between your local IP and hostname (not really necessary but all good systems have this).
6. Run S:startnet and enjoy!

Known problems/bugs:
1. You'll often see in the syslog window "Task xxxx attempted to use library base of task NETTRACE", ignore it.
2. Samba doesn't work (is unable to get interfaces list).
3. Can't replace Genesis kernel because bsdsocket.library version is left as 3 and Genesis environment asks for v4. I decided this is better than crashing because of some missing functions.
4. TCP transfer is tested, UDP is not tested (didn't have time, wanted to sleep too much), but is expected to work.
5. IP settings can't be changed on the fly via ifconfig.
6. Routing and resolving via DNS are not tested (not enough environment to do it), but are expected to work.
So, please, tell me any results you get. If you discover that some software doesn't work with the kernel, tell this! Mail everything to me: sonic_amiga@rambler.ru, this will make it easy to collect the information. Or, even better, use bug tracker at SourceForge:
