DESCRIPTION

Psion's fine palmtop computer series, namely the S3 and S3a, contain an
even finer operating system, whose neat features cover a full fledged
peer-to-peer networking software using a protocol called NCP.  Using NCP,
you can link together two Psion computers or a Psion and a different,
perhaps stationary machine and happily exchange data on your behalf.  NCP
services include, but are not limited to, accessing files on the remote
machines as if they were on yours, in both directions. 

AmigaNCP features a full NCP implementation including a remote file server
to access Amiga files from your Psion and a file system to access Psion
files from your Amiga.  The package also offers an API to allow custom
applications to directly access network services at the NCP level.

SPECIAL REQUIREMENTS

Requires AmigaOS 2.04 and the PC version of the S3-Link serial connector.

The optional development toolkit has been designed for SAS/C 6.x, but might
be usable with different compilers.
