FtpServer 2.0 is open source

eComStationNews.com - Wed, 20140903 - 00:57 -0600

The FtpServer software, formerly distributed as shareware, is now
open-source and freeware, subject to the GPL open-source licence. The
binaries and the sources may be obtained from

www.pmoylan.org/pages/os2/FtpServer.html

or from Hobbes.

(Binaries in one zip file, sources in three other zip files.)

FtpServer is an FTP daemon for OS/2. Although an FTP daemon already
comes supplied with OS/2, this one has more flexible control over what
clients are allowed to do and see. Each user sees a virtual file system
(which can be different for each user) which, through the use of
symbolic links and visibility controls, hides the actual file system
from the user. It is also possible to control which IP addresses are
allowed to connect to the server.

The included tools include a Monitor program that lets the manager see
who is connected.

INIServe updated to version 2.4

eComStationNews.com - Sat, 20140830 - 05:19 -0600

The latest version of INIServe can be downloaded from

ftp://ftp.pmoylan.org/software/iniser2.4.zip

or from Hobbes. It is not significantly different from version 2.3, but
is now licensed under the GNU GPL licence.

INIServe is software for remote access to OS/2 INI files. It is a
recommended add-on for the programs Weasel, Major Major, and FtpServer,
but is potentially usable for any program that is running on a different
computer than the manager's computer.

GenINI updated to version 1.61

eComStationNews.com - Fri, 20140829 - 19:52 -0600

There was an error in the build process of yesterday's release of the
GenINI software. A new build, version 1.61, can be obtained from

www.pmoylan.org/pages/os2/genini.html

GenINI version 1.6 released

eComStationNews.com - Fri, 20140829 - 01:12 -0600

The GenINI package has been updated to version 1.6. You can obtain it from

www.pmoylan.org/pages/os2/genini.html

or from Hobbes. There is no change in functionality from version 1.5.
The only reason for this release is to add a GNU GPL open-source licence.

GenINI consists of two programs, to convert between the INI and TNI file
formats. A TNI file is a human-readable version of an INI file. It can
be used for backing up INI files. It can also be used in conjunction
with the Weasel and Major Major mail programs.
