This documentation is somewhat sketchy at the current time.
Additional documenation will be prepared over the next several weeks.
PicLan-IP has been developed for Unidata/NT relese 3.6.4. PicLan-IP
may run in conjunction with other Unidata/NT releases, but this has not
Installing the PICLAN-IP Account
The PicLan-IP software is distributed as a multidirectory 32-bit
PkZip archive file. You should unzip this archive in a directory called
PICLAN-IP under the Unidata directory on your C drive as in:
pkzip25 -extract -dir path\xxyyzz.zip
If you have installed Unidata on a different drive letter than c:, you
may need to make modifications to several VOC entries in the PICLAN-IP
Configuring the PicLan-IP Software
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:
For more information, refer to the standard PicLan-IP configuration documentation:
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:
The DLL PATH= parameter points to a directory type Unidata file
called NAT.OBJ. This path should work regardless of where
you install PicLan-IP.
Only the first IP address field is used.
Default gateway and route table information is 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.
Loading the PicLan-IP Drivers
note: This proceedure may be eliminated in future PicLan-IP releases.
You must execute the command:
in order to actually start the PicLan-IP driver daemons. This command
only needs to be execute once. You can use the PLIP-UNLOAD command
to stop the PicLan-IP Win32 helper task.
The PicLan-IP software runs in Pick personality mode. CCALL statements
are setup using the PASCAL calling convention (the default). If you
have applications that need to run in other personalities or with other
calling conventions, you must be very careful to restore the systems state
if these functions are called within the web server's context.
