I have a box running SCO OpenServer 5.0.6. I've been able to locate the file I wish to extract, but the extraction is causing me pain. After reading the articles, and attempting to replicate other suggestions, I simply cannot pull off the text file. Here is what I've tried:
1. ifconfig and only the lo0 interface shows up though an ethernet adapter is installed on the motherboard. it would have been nice (and easier) to allow the OS to capture an IP from the DHCP server and then I could copy the file to the network. I am unsure how to bring up the interface (besides ifconfig en0 up) because it seems even the hardware isn't being recognized.
2. copying the file to a 1.44 mb diskette. this failed. it returned the error message "tape write error" for multiple instances or different diskettes.
Please advise, as I do not know much about the OS, or further, how to troubleshoot this issue.
Got something to add? Send me email.
