Our PC --> Internet link is wierd. I have a PC attached to a Novell LAN by
Arcnet card, and all NRC's LANs are WANned. We get out to Internet via PC
--> Arcnet --> LAN --> WAN --> PC-Route --> Ethernet on one of our WAN
machines. Consequently lots of stuff doesn't work.. like Desqview/X,
exceed, anything to do with Winsock, Lanera's demo, etc, etc. Packet-driven
stuff (NCSA, WATTCP, CUTE, Gopher, Kermit) does. The best (and virtually
only) Xserver which I can use is from Starnet (a LANERA partner). Their
packages X-lite and X-(en)lite work well. Enough of a recommendation?
