Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. FTP Software was a software company incorporated in 1986 by James van Bokkelen, John Romkey, Nancy Connor, Roxanne van Bokkelen, Dave Bridgham and several other founding shareholders. It was the first of many companies to name themselves after an Internet protocol. Their main product was PC/TCP, a full-featured, standards-compliant TCP/IP package for DOS. Initially the protocol stacks were linked into individual application executables, but by 1989 all PC/TCP applications shared a TSR kernel, which itself used built-in network interface drivers, and TSR PC/TCP Packet Drivers. The company had a good run, but suffered greatly from both internal and external pressures. It had grown rapidly and repeatedly moved physically farther away from its roots at MIT. The founders, though technically adept, were inexperienced as managers. They suffered from in-fighting, epitomized in a public divorce between two of the founders.show more
