The TCP/IP Package for RT-11 provides networking services for mapped RT-11 systems. The package is an assemblage of server and client programs designed to provide Telnet, FTP, Mail, POP3, LPD, and HTTP services for local and remote users of RT-11 sys- tems. The programs are written in C and RT-11 macro. A secu- rity system allows usernames/passwords and authorizations for each client/server component to be specified for each user. The sources for the 'TCP/IP Package for RT-11' include header, command, C language, and macro files. The DECUS C com- piler (with some bug fixes) and AS assembler are included with the software distribution to allow the package to be recompiled from the supplied sources. The current implementation uses upto 16 global regions to support multiple client/server programs simultaneously. Each client program uses 1 region except for the FTP variants (FTP, FTPL, and RFTP) which use an additional region during data transfers. The network control program TCPIP uses one addi- tional region for fragmented packet reconstruction. The hardware requirements are an RT-11 mapped system (version 5.3 or later) having a minimum of 512k bytes of memory, a DECNA (Pro), a DEQNA/DELQA (Q-Bus), or a DEUNA/DELUA (Unibus) ethernet card with associated transceiver (thick, thin, or CAT-5) and op- tionally a pair of dedicated serial lines for a remote Telnet session.
