|What is JNOS ? (from a Barry McLarnon, VE3JF <[email protected]> document)|
Jnos is a NOS (Network Operating System) version of KA9Q NOS.
JNOS development was started by Johan WG7J (building on the base established by Phil Karn KA9Q, with contributions from PA0GRI, SM0RGV, G1EMM and many others). Johan maintained the code until April 1994 (up to version 1.10C). The JNOS maintainer is now James Dugal, N5KNX <[email protected]>.Other NOS variants which spun off from JNOS are also discussed on this list < [email protected]>.These include the WWW server and other enhancements by Selcuk N3YCO, MFNOS by Barry K2MF, and the "NNN mods" by Mark KA1NNN. TNOS by Brian Lantz, KO4KS is also discussed, but it also has its own mailing list. To subscribe, send mail to [email protected] with the single line 'subscribe tnos-sig' in the text. Discussion of non-BBS issues which are likely to be of interest to NOS users and sysops, such as the convers server, NNTP, POP, PPP, gateway applications, etc, are also welcome. Many of the list subscribers are active contributors to the development of the JNOS code. The list is unmoderated, and is maintained by Barry McLarnon, VE3JF <[email protected]>.
