Michael I'm with you, except we're using pure TCP/IP. I think the problems have centered around the lackof a 32-bit twinax driver and the (at best) kludgy process for setting up NS Router connections. Also, the lack of the printer session and device naming have been, IMO, a real gaff. That's what's coming in the v3r1m3 GA, I gues. TCP/IP is an absolute dream, AFAIC. I've turned away from AnyNet because it will be slower and we don't need the printer sessions, although that is one of the forthcoming features that will be interesting, as well as being able to name TELNET sessions. We're getting around that now by retrieving the IP address that corresponds to the QPADEVnnnn device, a new feature of the Retrieve Device Description API, format DEVD0600, I think (at home—on vacation—brain out to lunch).
