Re: cross platform networking in tcp/ip + tools

What are you trying to accomplish?

What exactly do you mean "cross platform networking?" Do you mean copying files between systems? (FTP, SFTP, SCP,NFS, SAMBA could all be useful.) Do you mean connecting to different servers? (SSH, Telnet could be useful.) Do you mean something else?

Please state your requirements better, if possible, and you will get a more specific answer.

TCP/IP _is_ cross-platform networking. I'm
writing this on a VMS workstation. On what
are you reading it? (I'm guessing not on
another VMS workstation.)

A fair question.

Re: cross platform networking in tcp/ip + tools

take a look at:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Transmission_Control_Protocol

TCP/IP are a set of standards for the transmission of data. *many* tools use them, and as noted above, those tools serve a variety of purposes.

as for what "various tools" support cross-platform networking, perhaps a more useful question would be "what tools are used on platform X to support function Y"
