From: MITHELEN To: ALL

I am pleased to announce that the SandV BBS is back on line, and open to
users. The BBS is now running on a Sun 3/160 workstation, running
SunOS Release 4.1, StG-Net V4 Menu system, and the latest Unix Mail and
News software. There is an extensive OS-9 (both 6809 and 68k) file section,
as well as many GIF, IFF, FLI, and MOD files, available to all users for
downloading.

    Hi Paul, can I Net transfer to Your presend StG v4 system with my StG v3? would
    like to be able for Your system to be my parent system again…

    Dieter, StG v4 doesn’t even have netxfr yet, and if it did it is not
    compatible with v3. You hve 2 choices now as parent system, Home
    in Florida at 4800 baud or Narnia here in CA at 2400 baud.

    Hope to see SAB and PhotoNet back on the net.

    No…. Scott has no workign network transfer program for V4 yet, and when he
    does get it working, it will not be compatable with the V3 “netxfr”. I’m
    predicting that scott should have a release version of StG V4 (for OSK and
    Unix) by CoCoFest time. The new menu interface program (smenu) is pretty
    much in it’s release stage, and is VERY nice… can do a LOT more then
    the V3 menu program… and it supports ALL termtypes that are in the
    systems termcap file…

    Thanks for the replay, as 4800 and 2400 baud is to slow for NetXfr long
    distance from Southern Alberta Canada… I will not rejoin the StG Net unless
    I find a StG system that transfers at 9600 baud.

    > StG v4

    I am also waiting for StG v4 for the MM/1a so that I can get back on the NET,
    then StG v3 systems are now either at 4800 baud or 2400 baud, andthat is to
    slow for net transfers from my location to the parent system, I cant afford
    the cost of the LD charges… If StG v4 dont get released this year, I
    might use RCIS, that BBS system is already running on the MM/1 and I have a
    demo system setup on my MM/1, looks not to bad. Was a lot easyer to setup then
    STG v3 was… Thanks for Your input Paul!

    9600 baud can not be used reliably with a 6809 CoCo system and standard
    rs232 pak. 4800 is reliable. Home is running a 14.4k bps modem at 4800
    since the rs232 pak drops charactors at 9600.

    I plan on getting a 14.4K too…. but until I can get Powerboost and a
    6309 my system will not support anything higher than 4800. Now if
    CoNect or some other company would sell a new buffered rs232 port
    for the CoCo, one that uses the 16550 chips…

    Sorry Jim, but this is wrong info. The CoCo (6809) running stock Level 2 using
    a 6551 based serial port is perfectly capable of 9600. If it is unreliable
    for you, look at your modem setup and software.

    Um, I’m running 9600 baud here with no character loss (that I know of) on a
    6809 and a 232 Deluxe Pak. I’ve had a couple of CoCo users that have with
    character loss, but it must be on their end because the non-CoCo users have
    never complained of any character loss.

    If I get insane again… I might attempt to try porting over Taylor UUCP
    to OSK again… With Taylor UUCP on my Sun… I’m able to get 1500 CPS
    throughput on a V.32 modem and a 19.2K port speed… Darn fast! The Taylor
    “i” protocal is also bi-directional, like netxfr is… And UUCP is a well
    accepted standard for network comunications… I REALLY like Scotts
    menuing interface though! You would not believe how much more advanced
    the latest version is over the CoCo version for V3… Scott and I have
    spent several hours on the phone (long distance) getting SMenu up to
    snuff… It is really close to being “perfect” (he has some other really
    cool ideas for it, but I am gonna get him to wait on them, and concentrate
    on stgxfr after this week) The last time I work with scott on stgxfr, was, um
    before Atlanta CoCoFest… we nearly had it comunicating between two
    system null modemed together. Oncewe get that working, then he can put
    in the hooks for mail and news, and for remote startup… Which will
    be pretty trivial (compared to all the other codeing)

    9600 on a CoCo… (Re: Msg 85797)
    From: MITHELEN To: RANDYKWILSON

    Come on Randy… That is not accurate at all… The CoCo with STOCK Level 2
    and standard 6551 is most definately NOT capable of reliably handleing
    continuous 9600 baud recieves. You CAN get it to work reliably, with
    minimal software changes (hacked SACIA) and a cable hack, but still
    It does not REALLY handle TRUE 9600 baud throughput.

    With Supercomm 2.3 beta, and using a LineLink 14.4 modem it will connect
    just fine at 9600 but during the online session, characters are lost. This is
    using a CoNect 6551A board and SACIA (patched). Downloading with any
    protocol (compression turned off) yeilds about 400 cps average. The
    highest that I have ever received with Ymodem batch was 500 cps. There
    are alot of errors during the transfer which slows the system down. Zmodem
    will top out at an average of 250-300 cps. At 4800 baud ymodem yeilds
    425-450 cps and zmodem gets an average of 375-400 cps.

    My bbs and uucp software works fine at 4800 baud but not 9600.

    The CoCo hardware, stock level 2, and AciaPak with only the 240 byte buffer
    patch is fully capable of recieving a *continious* 9600 baud data stream.
    The bottle neck is the application gathering the data; how efficient the
    app is, and what it does with the data (screen writes kill throughput).
    I do have extensive testing to back this up.

    You are right Paul! You dont get true 9600 baud, but the fastest transfer the
    CoCo 3 and OS9 is capable of, and thats wat I am after till I can either
    implement StG v3 or StG v4 on the MM/1a, and is not that then I will change to
    RCIS, that BBS software a
    lready runs on the MM/1. But I like StG better and will wait till then, or if

    Yes, but, transmissions are even a worse problem. Especially when using
    a modem that requires hardware handshakeing. Most of that problem lies in
    the standard 6551.

    When trying to use an advanced bi-directional protocal like netxfr for StG,
    all these little problems stack up, and reliable transfers become near
    impossible on a “stock” setup. With the proper hardware hacks, and software
    changes, you can get decent reliability (although throughput still isn’t near
    what the theretical max throughput should be)

    Jim,

    You have something wrong, very wrong. SuperComm 2.2 (and 2.3) will do 9600
    with a 920 cps thoughput (ramdisk, about 750cps to harddrive) with box stock
    OS-9 with the exception of upping AciaPak’s buffer to greater than 150
    characters.
    If you are missing chars, then *something* is hogging the CPU with IRQ’s
    off for long amounts of time. The usual culprit isa non-stock clock. Use
    Eddie’s edition 9 clocks. I do know from my own personal machine that the
    Disto Xn1 clock driver limits the system to 4800. Eddie’s disto clock works
    fine.

    BTW, does it really take twelve lines to tell everyone who you are?

    Well. I’m using the patch sacia (xtp=$8f) and Eddie’s clock Ed. #9
    for my B&B.

    I don’t have a high speed modem to test it here but when I had one here

    I don’t currently have access to a high speed modem for testing but
    when I did have one here I wasn’t able to get reliable 9600 baud.
    I am using Eddie’s edition 9 clock for the B&B, and the patched scaia
    driver, XTP=8F. Downloads were done to the hardrive, but nowhere near
    750 cps.

    Actually 10 lines but who’s counting . If I get InfoXpress to
    let me select my short signature then I will.

    Thanks for the settings. I don’t have a high speed modem at this

    What does par=0C mean? I’ve seen par=00 and par=02.

    Hey, Jim, How ya doin’?

    Thought I’d butt in on this thread to ask something I’ve been wondering
    about, I suppose it’s related enuff. Really, anyone may be able to answer…

    I wonder if a CoCo can benefit from a modem’s data compression. My modem is
    capable of MNP and v.32bis etc. However I’m using a Disto 4in1 and it
    doesn’t support RTS/CTS handshaking. I’ve heard that it can be modified or
    I also have a Multi-Pak and RS232-Deluxe, but hate to put it back
    in. However, I wonder if there is any benefit. Also, there is a passage in
    my Modem manual about “the computer-to-modem speed should be several times
    faster than that of the DCE line speed.” Does that mean that I could have
    my computer set at something above 2400 baud? The modem is 2400…

    Just wondering…

    Are you running a stock serial port and stock OS-9 with stock modules?
    I think not.

    Welp… Just talked with Scott G. again tonight, and got some good
    news… He now has the base low level protocal working for StG V4 “stgxfr”
    and, on a 9600 baud link between his MM/1 and Sun 3/160, was able to get
    over 1300 CPS on a bi direction test transfer, on un refined code. The
    MM/1 side showed no errors, while the Sun side had only 7 retries (don’t
    know how big the test file was)

    You are right! I’m NOT… But way are You still doing that? Most patches
    are on Delphi or CIS, and the cost to modify the TANDY RS-232 Deluxe pack is
    negligible, and the rest is cost free so to speek (on Delphi)…

    Thats great Paul, soon as Scott has it finiched, tell him that I would like a
    copy for my MM/1, also let me know wat the cost will be… Thanks!

    Do’nt know about the Comm 4 board, I use the Ken_Ton Dual RS-232 port and have
    good luck with it, all line are supported on that board!

    The Comm-4 is basically 4 standard RS-232 packs mashed onto one board.
    What’s weird is, I changed the ACIAs on my Comm-4.. and it worked no problem.
    but, when putting the exct same ACIAs int Carls Comm-4, it didn’t work (in
    fact, i think it made it unusable).

    All the lines are supported on the COMM4 board as well. The board that Boisy
    sold worked with the new chips just fine….the one I had wouldn’t. I am
    going to take you up on the offer of buying the chips and caps. Could you
    get 4 chips and the caps needed and write down exactly what is needed to be done

    for the modification the way you did it? Right now I have a ’486 a terminal
    and 2 modems on the COMM4. The modems are 2400 and the terminal is set at
    9600. The ’486 is set to 4800. On the other port of the ’486 I have a
    14,400 modem that really screams now that I have a high speed serial port
    board installed. It is set at 57,600 between the modem and computer! Now
    all I need is to get a SCSI hard drive for the system (’486) and OS-9000 will
    get installed. Really need a SVGA monitor as well but I can live with VGA
    for now. Best wishes,

    OK! Have all the Caps in stock, and two chips, will have to get two more from
    Calgary as soon as I get the Money from You… Also will make a drawing for
    the instructions, and also will take a Picture of my RS-232 Deluxe pak, that
    will show you how I don
    e it… My KEN-TON dual RS-232 pak I did not have to ad the caps, just
    replaced the old 6551 chips fore the new once and wolla! all done…

    Good Sirrah! Could you send me the approximate cost of said upgrade 6551 chips
    and Caps, as well. I also have a higher – than – 4800 Baud modem
    that I would like to kick into higher gear. You could let CBJ know and he can

    I just checked the New Catalogue from my supply’er and the caps are $ 0.34
    each, and the R65C51P2 chips are $ 12.50 each… But the catalogue had a foot
    note stating that prices would change with the demand and the state of the
    economy…
    So the final price might differ when I finally get them, plus shipping…

    I will phone the company tomorrow for a final price check, will also order two
    chips to fill CBJ’s order… Will include with every order a copy of my
    invoice from my supply’er…

    Happy Easter!
