Discussion Google Group Slow speed/possible poor Cygwin IPC implementation.
Note that the qm runtime built here only requires a smallish cygwin1.dll (not the full cygwin install) to provide some posix functionality that is not provided by mingw/msvc.
July 2006 Here it is. The file is a bit big since I put some screen caps of the generic cygwin install process to try and get people up to speed quickly. http://www.neosys.com/software/openqmcygwin.zip I couldn't make a proper install script yet. Also I can only get telnet (to qm) working by running xinetd service from a cygwin command line and not as a proper installed service. I'm pretty certain that it is a permissions issue. Perhaps someone can explain how to get the usual inetd daemon running instead of xinetd. The command is "/usr/sbin/xinetd -d". Cheers, Steve INSTALL CHECKLIST - install cygwin default (for all users not "just me") add the following: - development - GCC compiler - net - xinetd - admin - cygrunsrv - editors - vim - unpack openqm distro file to be /usr/qmsys (c:\cygwin\usr\qmsys) in cygwin: cd /usr/qmsys ./buildgpl (should be no errors/warnings except maybe qmconv doesn't compile) create a file /etc/qmconfig containing: (caps required!) [QM] QMSYS=/usr/qmsys NUMUSERS=9 To enable qmconsole ------------------- in My Computer properties, Advanced, Environment Variables, Add SYSTEM Env Variable - CYGWIN system environment variable to include the word "server" space to sep other words then *CLOSE* and reopen all cygwin consoles! in cygwin cygserver-config to install as a service chmod 666 /var/log/cygserver.log net start cygserver or /usr/sbin/cygserver -d and read the screen to see that cygserver is running (nb service permissions may be less than console permissions) then cd /usr/qmsys bin/qm -start (if you get Bad System Command then close and restart all cygwin consoles and restart cygserver service) (it should reply QM has been started bin/qm (should open a console for you with no login required) To enable telnet and client --------------------------- cd /usr/qmsys bin/qm -start (if you haven't already done so) - copy sample file from this folder (qmclient and qmsrvr) service def files to /etc/xinetd.d folder - change to a valid administrator user name embedded in the above files - dos2unix /etc/xinetd.d/* - /etc/services to have lines for qmclient tcp 4242 and qmsrvr tcp 4243 qmsrvr 4242/tcp #OpenQM Telnet Server qmclient 4243/tcp #OpenQM Client Access - start xinetd.d as follows cd /usr/sbin ./xinetd -d and read screen log to ensure qmclient and qmsrvr services are loaded control+c to stop the following to add as a service cygrunsrv -I xinetd -p /usr/sbin/xinetd look in win application event log if fail to start /var/log/service log records connections maybe need to chmod 666 /var/log/servicelog telnet localhost 4242 login with any valid win32 user name and password for account put qmsys DONE!
