Text (From FidoNet to Internet: The evolution of a national network)
fidonet-to-internet.pdf - Published Version
The South African academic research network, UNINET-ZA, evolved within two years from a FidoNet mail gateway that distributed email via interactive Kermit links, to a dialup uucp network, to wide area TCP/IP, and finally to full Internet connectivity. While the majority of UNINET-ZA sites are now TCP/IP connected, elements of the original gatewaying techniques are still fulfilling useful functions - for example a TCP/IP <=> FidoNet gateway, and links into non-Unix, non-TCP/IP based systems.
