[Coco] What ever Happened to NineServer ?

The "Z" terminal windows have very little (if anything) to do with inetd or httpd. That's a whole new ballgame. Basically, you are trying to do two different things.
To use the Z descriptor is simple. After boot just type
That is all that is needed. You should be able to use the window on your PC immediately as you've created a shell for it to run on. Those windows are not configurable and have their own default settings.
I'm pretty sure inetd & httpd are meant for using with the "/Nx" series and/or the DW version of /term (for headless) using the TCP and/or hayes modem command set.
The real problem is we have several access methods, none of which are properly documented (the DW4 wiki is about 12 upgrades behind), and none of which were completely finished.
I know Brett Gordon has done more with the inetd & tcp stuff as I haven't worked with it at all other than to log into telnet BBSs.

I have made some progress, I now get a window opening but when I try to type into a shell in that window the coco completely crashes to "gibberish screen".All relevant details below.A. My inetd.conf# inetd configuration file format:# ListenPort <server opts>,Process,Params# valid server options are: telnet auth protect banner6810 telnet protect banner,login,8810,httpd,80,runb,httpdB.
