(SCO Unix)What is netcat and how do I use it? 
- Using direct port printing on SCO Unix with Kevin Smith's 'netcat' for SCO. Note that Linux can do this in CUPS - this is only for old SCO Unix.
 
Updating Sendmail  by Bruce Garlock
- I figured it must be simple enough to add SMTP authentication. Boy, was I wrong. Although this function is integrated into the latest RedHat releases of Sendmail, it is not in the 6.2 releases.

- A simple Linux shell script to write to lpd printers using the 'netcat' utility.
