Doug has inspired me. I have gone and gotten a copy of the 11/28
version of nosnix from sics.se. I have it up and functioning in a
reasonable fashion on 2 different SYS V machines (Altos 5.2 and Mips
5.3). It doesn't have all the bells and whistles, but it does ftp and
ping. I have not tried the telnet yet, and have not had anyone ping
into the machine (yet). It does seem relatively stable.
I will be trying to add some of the things that Anders has mentioned
in his work (fingerd, telnetd, ftpd, etc.). My main goal will be to have
this be a setup and forget kind of operation, with multiple mailbox
connections on the same channel (no problem with multiple processes for the
mailbox). I have to send Anders a set of patches for the sys5 stuff
that I had to add.
If there is interest in this I will go ahead and make it available
on thumper. As you can see from the couple of machines that I have been
using it on, it does not rely on anything out of the ordinary.
