Network Manager dies, OpenServer 5.0.4 - SCO

    Default Network Manager dies, OpenServer 5.0.4

    Greetings.

    I am trying to get an OpenServer 5.0.4 machine to connect to the
    Internet through an existing gateway (a Hawking router w/DHCP) rather
    than through its own dedicated modem. The doentation says I should
    be able to change these settings through the Network Configuration
    Manager; I can successfully start the manager, but when I try to
    modify the driver settings in my network card's chain it fails with
    the following error message:

    prompter(SendRequest): BackEnd script died
    Error in /opt/K/SCO/tcp/2.1.1Eb/usr/lib/tcprt/bin/sco_tcp.BE
    Press Enter to continue

    Can I change the gateway and DHCP settings for this interface without
    restoring the system or using the network manager in any way?
    Restoring this file from backups is possible but inconvenient.

    Thank you,

    I don't have 5.0.4, but on 5.0.6 I might try editing /etc/rc2.d/S85tcp
    directly (back it up first).
    Not exactly an official procedure...but it may help. Just an idea...
