I've a socket program that uses TCP protocol that connect to a terminal
server.  This terminal server then uses x.25 protocol to talk to
terminal.  At the terminal server, I'm getting Buffer Overrun error.
Anybody know what that means?

My guess is that you're sending data faster than the terminal can read it from the terminal server. When this happens, the terminal server saves the data temporarily in a buffer so that it can send it to the terminal once the terminal catches up. But if the data keeps coming, eventually it fills up the whole buffer, and the terminal server can't save it all.

I could be wrong -- the above is just a guess -- but in any case, there's a buffer somewhere that's too small for the amount of data you're sending it.
