[TUHS] 4.3 Wisc file transfer

I have a pre-built Lynx for 4.3 UWISC here:

I recall 4.3 RENO being incredibly unstable, and having major issues compiling lynx as some of the files are pretty big.  Basically I found 4.3 UWisc hiding in a directory on TUHS, and though I’d see what it was and I found it to be a FAR FAR superior thing to not only RENO, but stock 4.3 .

Speaking of AberMUD, I have version 2 built for pretty much everything....


I need to troll the old usenet stuff for some sz/rz and an old httpd, maybe Apache 1.3 may work as well, I mean I did get it to actually build for NT 3. 1 of all things, so a BSD shouldn’t be such a long shot.  Maybe add in a perl, and we can have a semi useful gateway....  Although I guess adding in MySQL and going full *AMP may be a bit crazy, but it could be useful.. And maybe it’d open up WebDAV for shuffling files around.

Should work fine with the 4.3 template tape... But I would save the original kernel
just in case

I moved binaries from the older 4.3 to Reno and uWisc without problems. 

Ftp works.  I wish I could get lynx and wet to build.

I don't know how close 4.3UWisc is (in terms of config files etc.) to
valilla 4.3BSD, but you might be able to untar the 4bsd-uucp customisation
tarball over the top of 4.3UWisc. That would get you the ftp binary with
PASV on by default, and the de0 interface set up with a working NAT IP
address. Then you could set up a local ftp server on another box.

I'm nearly out the door for a week's break else I'd try it out.
Cheers, Warren
