An interesting question just popped up here. Can you run multiple
Unix sessions under MS Windows ?
A PC rund MS Windows. One of the serial lines on the PC
goes straight into a /dev/ttyxx on a Unix machine. You
want to open a few windows and start talking to your Unix
machine (doing different things of course) in each of the
As a minimum, you need the mux-demux software on the PC (to talk correctly
to each window, flash its icon, direct right output to right one, etc). On
the unix machine, you need the equivalent program, that makes the (one) serial
line look like N terminals.
Sure it's been done before. Question is: is the PC SW available anywhere
(PD, freeware, shareware, commercial or whatever). And is the Unix SW
available in source form (since I have to recompile it for my machine).
Any leads will be appreciated. If you prefer direct e-mail or even
the phone, I'll summarize to the net.
