Thought this might be of interest to those who were excited about Cello.

>NDIS driver in use with Win4Workgroups the IP stack proved to be unstable.
>No GPF's occured, but the system crashed after about 50 keystrokes when

>Now Microsoft has a TCP/IP Win4Workgroups add on, $50.  It also supports
>winsockets.  I can get Cello to work with this setup, but it is unstable
>and random crashes occur that send me to the dos prompt and leave me there
>to wiggle and die ;(... Anyway, MS tech support is trying to help me out
>(BEWARE:  MS handles the TCP/IP support with the LAN Manager group and it
>can cost you $150/incident without much begging and pleading).

>We really like Winsock Cello out here in Oregon, I hope that we can solve
>the instability problems with out TCP/IP.  Any comments or suggestions are
>welcome.
