SFLP (Scitex Fiber Link)
LANC PS2-32 Ethernet

The propritary cards can't be used in any
newer machines. The software (AIX1.3 and Scitex stuff) is made to
recognize and use specific ethernet, LanC, Scitex Fiber Link (SFL) and
Greg Chabala rains on my AIX documentation hopes:
Word is that there aren't any manuals,
and never were. The ps2 turned into a turnkey system once the Scitex distribution
was installed, and even the install was graphical. So no manual talks about
the workings of AIX, just how to install and use the Scitex system.
If you have anything on this card, please

There doesn't seem to be much on this card. It is possibly part
of the "Star" or "Star Lite" publishing system by Scitex. The Scitex site
has four text notes on microchannel adapters, all Y2K related. That's it...
Greg Chabala says:
I think what you have gotten ahold of is the Scitex FiberChannel
card. Scitex used PS/2 model 80s and still uses 95s as workstations for
running their "Dolev" line of film plotters. Star is one of the software
versions. This card would talk with the Dolev through the fiber optics,
while the PS/2 would have files passed to it for plotting over a network.
The card should only operate when running the Scitex software, which is
a custom GUI running over an old version of AIX. (Ed.
AIX for PS/2? ver 1.1 to 1.3?)
