In order to install PicLan-IP for D3/NT, you must have D3/NT
build 261 or later. This release consists of:
Boot Monitor 7.1.1.0239; 10/12/97
Boot ABS 7.1.0.A11; 3 Oct 1997
Boot ABS Data File 7.1.0.A11; 3 Oct 1997
System Data Files 7.1.0.D11; 3 Oct 1997
As of October 21, 1997, this is a test release from Pick Systems. Use of
PicLan-IP with build 230 is possible but a bug in Flash Basic will cause
web pages over 30K (15K for binary items) to truncate.
You should be able to run D3/NT on a Windows NT or Windows
95 system, but only Windows NT has been tested at Modular Software.
In addition, you must install Windows TCP/IP protocol support and associated
Installing the PICLAN-IP Account
The PicLan-IP software is downloadable as a compressed archive (ZIP) file.
At this time, this file is manually installed using the following proceedure
(a future release of PicLan-IP for D3/NT will probably include
a somewhat more automated proceedure).
You can then configure the PicLan-IP server software in the same manner
as other PicLan-IP releases. You should note the following differences
as compared to native PicLan-IP releases:
Create a directory c:\plip_d3
Because of the way the D3/NT handles DLLs and long file names,
you cannot load the PicLan-IP support routines in the c:/program files/d3
Copy the PicLan-IP .zip file to the c:\d3_plip directory
Uncompress the PicLan-Ip .zip file. The following files will be created:
Copy and rename the Pseudo0 file to c:\program files\d3\d3virtual\Psuedo0
Start the D3/NT virtual environment and log to the dm account.
Execute the following TCL commands:
T-SELECT 2 (assuming that Psuedo0 is tape device 2)
T-LOAD MD (O
The PICLAN-IP account will be loaded.
For more information, refer to the standard PicLan-IP configuration documentation:
After PicLan-IP is configured, you execute the following command to activate
the PicLan-IP software:
In Windows Network Setup:
Set the IP address for your network adapters to the desired addresses for
the web server.
If you need virtual hosting, then you should enter multiple IP addresses
for each virtual host.
In the PLIP.CTRL CONFIG item:
Set the DLL PATH= parameter to point to the directory that contains
The IP address fields are not used.
In the WWW.CTRL CFG item:
If you use an asterisk '*' for an IP address, then the first IP
address in the PLIP.CTRL CONFIG file will be used, even if that address
is not valid for this machine.
This command will load the PicLan-IP support DLL (plip.dll) and
allocate buffer space. The PicLan-IP web server is then started with:
