Proposal:
--------

Creation of new newsgroup comp.dcom.servers.

Due to the rapid growth of communication servers in the industry and the
lack of a newsgroup to discuss their merits, pitfalls, and configuration
I'd like to begin discussion on a new newsgroup, comp.dcom.servers.


Status:
------

Unmoderated


Charter:
-------

To provide a central newsgroup for discussion about communication
servers such as terminal servers, network print servers, stand
alone SLIP/PPP/Appletalk servers, dial on demand routers, protocol
translators, etc.

Topics likely to be discussed in comp.dcom.servers would include: 
	* Functionality of products
	* Problem solving and appropriate solutions
	* Interoperability
	* General product selection issues, (price, support, etc.)
	* Impressions and debate on merit and drawbacks
	* Ideas/desires for new products and functionality

A monthly FAQ would also be posted containing manufacturers of such
products and how to contact them. Hopefully this will end the endless
messages requesting information of this sort on comp.protocols.tcp-ip
and elsewhere.


Rationale:
---------

Currently there is no central location to discuss this growing
field.  Messages requesting information about this type of product
can be found in such widely dispersed locations as
[email protected], comp.dcom.lans, comp.protocols.tcp-ip,
comp.protocols.ppp, comp.dcom.cisco, comp.unix.admin and comp.sys.sun.admin.

Cisco, Xyplex, Lantronix, Digital, Emulex, Livingston, Telebit,
Shiva, Milan and many other vendors provide products of these types,
many with overlapping and/or complimentary functionalities. Splitting
newsgroups along vendor, or communication server type inhibits
relative comparison of product merit and also inhibits problem solving
involving two or more different products.

Follow Up:
---------
Please follow up all discussion to news.groups.

Call for Votes on new newsgroup COMP.DCOM.SERVERS
-------------------------------------------------

Status:
-------
Unmoderated

Charter:
--------

To provide a central, unmoderated, newsgroup for discussion about
communication servers such as terminal servers, network print
servers, stand alone SLIP/PPP/Appletalk servers, dial on demand
routers, protocol translators, and other types of communication
servers.

Topics likely to be discussed in comp.dcom.servers would include: 
	* Functionality of products
	* Problem solving and appropriate solutions
	* Interoperability
	* General product selection issues, (price, support, etc.)
	* Impressions and debate on merit and drawbacks
	* Ideas/desires for new products and functionality

A monthly FAQ would also be posted containing manufacturers of such
products and how to contact them. Hopefully this will end the
endless messages requesting information of this sort on
comp.protocols.tcp-ip and elsewhere.

This newsgroup is not intended for discussion of servers in general,
or servers that provide communications services as a tangentially
to their primary purpose, (ie: Unix workstations or Novell file
servers).

Voting:
-------

Mail all yes votes to [email protected]
Mail all no votes to [email protected]

Yes votes sent to the no account and no votes sent to the yes
account will be disregarded.

Votes will be accepted through May 7 1992.
