 solved

whenever I start Yam on AmigaForever,it asks me for AmiTCP.Clicking the close gadget several times starts Yam and get the same problem when I download or send.This did not happen on an old install-had a total system crash and had to rebuild-so wondering what to do.Thanks.This is with both Yam 24patch 1 and the dev version :(

    Hi Alan,

    whenever I start Yam on AmigaForever,it asks me for AmiTCP.Clicking the close gadget several times starts Yam and get the same problem when I download or send.This did not happen on an old install-had a total system crash and had to rebuild-so wondering what to do.Thanks.This is with both Yam 24patch 1 and the dev version :(

    Sorry but I am not familiar with the internals of AmigaForever, but YAM requires a bsdsocket.library compatible TCP/IP stack for running properly. What is AmigaForever using, or do you need an extra Miami/AmitTCP like tcp/ip stack in addition to the standard AmigaForever package?

    AmigaForever has a built in BSDsocket library emulation so does not need Miami or other stacks.Will talk to the WinUAE and AmigaForever mailing lists and see what I find there and let you know what i find out.

    if this own internal TCP/IP stack is fully compatible to the well-known bsdsocket.library standard AmiTCP/Miami/Roadshow or any other Amiga TCP/IP stack is compatible as well, then YAM should work work without any problem or even notice.

    well yes it does work,it's just the requestor that I want to get rid of :( The 1 that asks 4 amitcp!

    There is no internal TCP/IP stack in WinUAE. The bsdsocket.library emulation (that ensures compatibility with the real bsdsocket.library) in WinUAE is, as far as I know, just a wrapper that sends all connection requests and data to Windows TCP/IP stack, and vice versa.

    Experiments tell me that compatibility is very high (if not perfect): I never had problems with Amiga browsers, mailers, IRC programs, FTP programs, and so on.

    I use YAM (with AmigaOS 3.9) in WinUAE (with Windows98 and WindowsXP) since years and never had this requester! :shock:

    I got it fixed,just made a fake assign and the requestor is gone

    Please post an exact description here how you solved your problem and what the actual problem now was. It might be quite interesting for others browsing this forum as well.
