During late August I was in Angola connecting a local University
(Universidade Agostinho Neto) to the Portuguese Academic Network (RCCN)
with a 19.200 bps line. It's very hard to get other kind of line, but we
hope to upgrade that connection to a 64K line until the end of 1997.
Currently there is a local problem at Luanda (Angola) so there is no
connectivity at all, the local PTT said that they'll solve this until the
end of November.
There local network is a thin ethernet connected to a Cisco 2511 router.
They have 5 PCs (486) with Windows95 and a Pentium100 running Linux as a
server. They also have some US Robotincs modems connected to the router
to dial into the network from home.
FCCN (Fundacao Nacional para a Computacao Cientifica - the organization that
manages RCCN) and a Portuguese University (Instituto Superior Tecnico)
are sponsering all this connection.
