Convergent Technologies Inc has announced just about the first third party implementation of full Unix System V.3, complete with AT&T’s RFS Remote File Sharing and an internally-developed Streams-based TCP/IP transport protocol. Called CTIX 6.0, the Convergent offering for its 68020-based OEM processors, also implements Sun Microsystems’ Network File System, NFS, with both Streams and Berkeley Sockets network interfaces, and an array of IBM and Open communications implementations. These comprise SNA LU 6.2/PU 2.1 emulations, Document Interchange and Content Architecture, SNA3270, RJE and bisync, and X25, X28, X29 and X3 protocols. CTIX 6.0 supports shared libraries, and also includes a new forms-oriented command interpreter called Assist.
