Linux-DECnet project LAT protocol suite
The linux-decnet project is an effort to bring full DECnet support to Linux; however, they also separately offer the latd package, a collection of programs that speak Digital’s old Local Area Terminal LAT protocol. These programs enable network clients to reach serial devices connected to old LAT-only terminal servers, such as the DECserver 200/MC.
This is a redistribution of the linux-decnet project’s software, with FreeBSD compatibility added. It is based very closely on the NetBSD port by Matt Fredette and has benefited from the wonderful assistance of Patrick Caulfield the original author.
