Re: Updated: inetutils-1.3.2-8


ironic that you should send something about inetutils.  Several months ago I
sweat bullets getting inetutils to work, but succeeded.  Several days ago I
downloaded what I thought was a minor upgrade after receiving an e-mail from
you.  After applying the upgrade inetutils no longer works at all.  The
question is: do you have in one place the steps to configure inetutils
properly within Windows NT 4.0?
