Folks,

A new version of NCSA Telnet with TUBA is now available.  The major
additions to this version from the February 4 release are:

        - a clnp ping initiator and responder,
        - a finger initiator, and,
        - the ability to heed ESIS redirects.

See below for details.

   Release notes for NCSA Telnet 2.3.05 (TUBA 1.0)
   -----------------------------------------------


This distribution is a modified version of NCSA Telnet,
version 2.3.05.  It incorporates a prototype of TUBA
(TCP and UDP with Bigger Addresses -- see RFC 1347).

The executables in this distribution were tested with
the Cisco prototype Tuba implementation.


Obtaining the Distribution
--------------------------
The distribution is available on osi.ncsl.nist.gov
(129.6.48.100) via anonymous ftp as file:

-rw-r--r--  1 colella    990147 Mar 12 17:10 ./pub/ncsa_tuba/ncsa_tuba_1.0.zip


osi.ncsl.nist.gov also supports "anonymous" FTAM as follows:

   Paddr  = {1,1,1,47:0005:80:005A00:0000:0001:E137:080020079EFC:00}
   userid = anon, no password, realstore = unix

The corresponding "ISODE isoentities" entry is:

   osi.ncsl.nist.gov   filestore NULL \
           #1/#1/#1/NS+47000580005a0000000001e137080020079efc00



Programs in the Distribution
----------------------------
The following executables are compiled and ready to go:

    telbin.exe - the basic NCSA Telnet program, which contains:
           o  a telnet initiator
           o  a clnp ping responder
           o  ability to handle redirects from routers
           o  an ftp responder (can be used to test basic
              connectivity by telnetting to the ftp port, 21)
    finger.exe - the finger initiator
    clnping.exe - a clnp version of ping (the "new"
                  kind as described in internet draft
                  draft-ietf-noop-echo-01.txt).

In addition to the precompiled executables, the distribution
also contains the source code.  The tools used to create these
binaries are:

    Microsoft C Compiler, Version 7.0
    Microsoft ASM (MASM), Version 6.1

The file 'build.bat' executes make on the three makefiles
for the telbin, finger, and clnping executables.


Configuration Information
-------------------------
For information on how to configure NCSA Telnet in general,
ftp to ftp.ncsa.uiuc.edu and look in the ./PC/Telnet/docs
directory.

For specific information concerning configuration for TUBA,
see directions in the 'config.tel' file included in this
distribution.  Also see 'tubaread.txt' (this file).
