User Directory List
By Dave Frailey
ULIST is a utility that you can provide on your network menu so that users
can have a quick method of looking up other users, or printing a list of all
users. It adds an additional property to each user's name that allows extra
items of information to be maintained. These are the user's phone number,
office, and grade. (Grade is tracked since ULIST was written for a military
environment.) If ULIST is run in a multi-server environment, it will also
allow the user to attempt to retrieve a list of users on other file servers.
When ULIST is run by a supervisor equivalent, it will create a binder object
called ULIST on the current server. This bindery object has no privileges
whatsoever. Its only purpose is to allow the ULIST program to log in from
another file server (and not be dependent on being able to log in as GUEST)
so that ULIST can perform a bindery scan of your server and provide its names
to users on the other server.
The additional property that ULIST adds to each user can be modified by that
particular user when they are logged in and running ULIST, or by the supervisor.
ULIST is free software, compliments of the author. If you use it, I'd like
to hear from you. ULIST is copyrighted by the author, all rights reserved.

dCOM 4.0 - The Directory Commander
This is the most powerful Dos Shell and menuing system you can run on
a Novell network. It is fully NetWare aware with a full range of
security features. Its macro language (which is the underlying platform
of its menuing system) supports such powerful options as being able
to loop around any type of bindery object (similar to being able to
use a batch file FOR command against the bindery), display pop-up
selection menus using multiple mask combinations on any bindery type,
access just about any item of Dos or Novell system information with
system variables, set and access up to 64k of temporary or permanent
user variables, and so on.... All Novell login script commands are
functionally supported and execute between 10 and 100 times faster.
Conditional (nestable) IF/THEN/ELSEIF/ENDIF blocks and nestable DO,
or DO WHILE blocks let you write macros using expressions normally
only found in high-level languages - or you can use the macros as
simply as in the MS-Dos batch language.
The file handler side of dCOM can copy entire directory structures
between volumes and retain directory trustees. Additionally, it also
includes a multi-windowed text editor, print spooler, alarms/events,
and much more.
The power in dCOM can't begin to be described even if I continued to
use several more pages of this document. It is written 100% in
assembler. On 386 machines with upper memory, or on 286 machines with
the high memory area available, it uses less than 4k of conventional
XGATE 1.3 - A high powered SMTP to MHS gateway
This is a high-quality, intuitive, seamless MHS to SMTP gateway. It
requires virtually no administration (no aliasing, look-up tables,
etc...). Addressing from both sides is kept as simple as possible.
One XGATE installation can service any number of MHS hosts.
XGATE is also written in 100% assembly language.
The current shareware versions of both of these packages can be downloaded
by calling the dCOM Support BBS, and on other BBS' or Compuserve.
