  Where can I get it, is it part of BSD (Free* or Net*)?

You should be able to find it on uunet. Sorry I can't find my reference
right now, but I'd definitely go with resolv+ as well.

  Sorry, have no TT. But Howard Chu told me about a 56k link TT <-> ka9q.
I also tried 115200 with poor results, but I'm not sure yet if the problem
was the TT or the PC. I think the PC just has an 8250 ACIA instead of a
16550, so suffered buffer overruns at that speed. 56k worked OK though, using
HSmodem on the TT. (That was easier than figuring out what to poke into the SCC
to set the speed myself...)
