COMMUNICATIONS SOLUTIONS HAS UNIX-TO-IBM DISOSS ELECTRONIC MAIL LINK

By CBR Staff Writer

ICL’s San Jose, California partner on SNA communications software, Communications Solutions Inc, has come up with something else that may well interest the Putney mainframer – a communications product that enables exchange of documents between Unix systems and IBM hosts running the SNADS SNA Distribution Services facility. Called UUCP/Connect, it provides automatic conversion of files between the Unix-to-Unix Copy Protocol and IBM’s DisOSS Distributed Office Support System with SNADS, providing transparent bothways conversion of file formats. To be offered OEM, UUCP/Connect sells for $25,000, and currently runs under Unix System V.2; a V.3 version is on the way. As well as ICL, Communications Solutions numbers Unisys Corp and Hewlett-Packard Co among the OEM customers for its products. ICL is taking Communications Solutions’ Access/SNA packs for use with its IPA network scheme (CI No 710).
