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 (V1.50) contains corrections, additions and
tweaking to the basic code. 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! Version 1.45a contains tweaking in the
WFW support, if you had trouble before, try it again. 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 1.15 is included in this release of SIO. VMODEM.EXE is
a virtual modem implementation that allows serial communications
programs to work over the Internet. MULTIPLE INTERNET/VMODEM PORTS
CAN BE DEFINED IN THE SIO COMMAND LINE. 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.
