11 Term clients

Contents of this section

11.1 Term clients available on ftp sites.

Below a list of application running with TERM is given. I am not stating that this list is complete; so any completion is welcome. As far as possible I will present the site and directory where the application can be found (all to my knowledge). When I state sunsite.unc.edu as the place to find the application I mean that you can find it in one of the following two directories:

  1. /pub/Linux/apps/comm/term/apps
  2. /pub/Linux/apps/comm/term/extra

Here we go :-)

11.2 The termnet package

The package termnet-2.0.4-Linux-bin.tar.gz (sunsite.unc.edu:/pub/Linux/apps/comm/term) contains a couple of pre-compiled TERM clients and a couple of scripts, manual pages and libtermnet.so.2.00.04. The clients are compiled using this version of libtermnet.so. The package contains the following clients:

fet         perl        sperl4.036  tmon        tshutdown   xgopher
finger      perl4.036   suidperl    trdate      tudpredir   ytalk
ftp         rcp         taintperl   trdated     tupload
fwhois      rlogin      telnet      tredir      txconn
ncftp       rsh         term        trsh        xarchie

WARNING: The package also contains the complete set of compiled clients of TERM 2.0.4 including TERM itself. Do not install this package before you are sure about what you want. You will destroy other versions of TERM and its clients when you start moving executables around.

11.3 Asked for but not yet supported

  1. DOOM: The problem with this game seems to be the fact that it uses port 5029 both as client and as server.
  2. NFS: The NFS server is only supposed to accept requests if the socket requesting the connection is bound to a port below 1024. This seems to be troublesome. However, some NFS servers have an 'insecure' option. In this case NFS might work eventually, if RPC support is added to Term.
