To Install SIO, change to the disk and directory containing the
(unziped) SIO distribution files and type INSTALL, followed by
return.

This release of SIO (V1.42) contains corrections and additions to
the basic code, but is mostly a release of Vmodem with outbound
Telnet. See HISTORY.TXT in the distribution zip for details.
The on line SIO documentation files (.INF) are not included in
this release of SIO, but will be added again as time permits.

Windows better than Windows! If you are using COMM.DRV from
Windows for Workgroups 3.11, SIO will now support the
communications directly. That is, Windows programs will be
directly supported by SIO proper, and the virtualization that
existed in earlier versions of SIO is bypassed. In this
environment, Windows communications programs should work as well
as native OS/2 communications programs. Thanks to Rob Rose of
IBM for some critical information about the Windows
communications interface.

The SIO support BBS is now available via Internet using VMODEM or
Telnet. The Internet address is 199.248.240.2 or
vmbbs.gwinn.com.

VMODEM version 1.05 is included in this release of SIO.
VMODEM.EXE is a virtual modem implementation that allows serial
communications programs to work over the Internet. VMODEM acts
as both a Telnet server or client, depending on the direction of
the connection. VMODEM allows virtually any data communications
program, including your favorite BBS software, to use an Internet
connection instead of a telephone line. Several existing BBSes
and now accessible via Internet. Most took only about 5 to 10
minutes to setup under VMODEM. I wonder if Internet is ready for
the explosion that is about to come.

VMODEM.EXE was developed and tested under IBM's TCP/IP Version
2.0 with the August 1994 CSD applied, and has been tested with
the Internet Access Kit (IAK) that is included in the bonus pack
of OS/2 V3. However, your are on your own with respect to any
setup of TCP/IP.
