     This file is available at

     Included is this help text file and light20b.cmd which is a login
script for Winsock 2.0B, the Windows TCP/IP program.  They need to be
in your winsock directory.  If you don't know what your winsock
directory is, you can find out in two ways.

     1.)  From the DOS command C:  prompt issue

     cd \
     dir login.cmd /s

     This will find the script called login.cmd and tell you what
directory it is in.  You need to copy over the light.exe file to that
same directory.

     2.) Go into windows and SINGLE click on the winsock icon.  You
DON'T want to start the program running.  Then click on FILE and pull
down to PROPERTIES and it will tell you what the working directory of
winsock is.

     Copy light.exe over to that directory and execute it.  This will
expand it to its various files, most important of which are and
light20b.cmd and this help.txt file.

     Make sure light20.cmd file is in that directory, then proceed
with the following.


     Double click on the winsock icon inside of Windows, and get it so
that its full window is up.  There will be some text in the window and
the first line of text at the top will tell you what revision it is.

     Most are either Revision 1.0 or Revision 2.0B

     Winsock has a habit of starting to dial as soon as you fire it
up.  This needs to be turned off.  If Winsock dials on you
automatically upon being started up click on DIALER and then OPTIONS
and turn off the automatic dialing.

     Either revision will work, however you will need a different
script for each as they changed their scripting language between

     WINSOCK 1.0A

     The script produced by Winsock 1.0 which comes with the Bear
Access Distribution package will work almost AS IS.

     Simply use the winsock configuration program to set your userid,
annex password and phone number.  Let it generate new scripts, and use
'login' from the dialup window to login.  First make sure to setup
Winsock parameters properly as described below.
     Really early versions of the bear access scripts need to have the
word SLAX changed to a colon (:).  You can do this with the EDIT
SCRIPTS option inside of Winsock.  Edit the login.cmd script.  This
change should allow the script to work with both bear access and

     Every time you create new scripts you will have to change the
word SLAX again to a colon in the login.cmd script.

     WINSOCK 2.0B

     If you are using Winsock 2.0B you will need to go to the dialup
window and click on setup.cmd, which will then prompt you for your
phone number, userid and password.  Once these are set, you are ready
to dial.  However you MUST use the script called light20b.cmd rather
than the default login.cmd which won't work.

     To run one of these scripts, make sure you know which winsock
revison you are using and then,

     0.) Fire up Winsock and make sure it is NOT in auto dial mode.
     1.) Click on File and then Setup.
     2.) Set Name Server to
     3.) Set Domain Name Suffix to
     4.) Set winsock to 'INTERNAL PPP' if not already set.
     5.) Set baud rate to 57600 if you have a 28.8 modem or
to 38400 if you have a 14.4 modem.  Some 14.4's won't handle 57600.
     6.) Set your SLIP port to your serial comm port, usually 2.
     7.) Set hardware handshake on.
     8.) Set Van Jacobson Compression on.
     9.) Click on OK and then File and Exit to close out Winsock
completely so that your new settings can take effect.

     These settings should not have to be made again unless you are
switching back and forth between services.

     10.) Fire up winsock again by clicking on the winsock icon.
     11.) If you are using Bear Access Winsock 1.0, click on
Dialup and then on 'login'.  If you are using Winsock 2.0B, click
on Dialup and then on light20b.cmd (at bottom of window) or on OTHER,
and choose light20b.cmd from the various options.
     12.)  It should proceed to dial and put you into SLIP mode.  You
will see the process take place on screen as it goes.

     You should see the atdt2775026 take place, and the prompt

Harmony[...] yourname:

     come up and the machine should type slip for you at that time, and
the annex should send back the Annex IP and your IP.  It should then say
"Slip Enabled."

     Once you are in slip mode you are officially attached to the
Harmony Terminal Server, which is a 72 port terminal server for people
to dial in on.  You can now test your connection by either using telnet
or netscape.


     Telnet to 'light', which is the name of our machine.  If this
works, it will offer you the login prompt like so

SunOS ...etc

     Once you are signed on, logout using the logout, logoff, log or bye


     Fire up Netscape or Mosaic or your favorite web browser.  It will
try to load its 'home page' which make take a second.

     You can set the default home page to our own or any page
you wish under the OPTIONS -> PREFERENCES at the top of the netscape

     Pick the first preference and set the default home page to

     This should take you to our new home page.  Click on ART MATRIX
and that will take you to the Art Matrix home page.  Then check out
all the personal home pages listed at the bottom of the main home

     If Netscape says 'Can't find Server' when first starting up,
hit the RELOAD button or HOME button at the top of the page and
usually it will work.

     To get out of all this, quit out of Netscape or telnet.  Then go
to DIALER in winsock and click on BYE.  This will properly shut down
your slip connection and disconnect your modem.  It takes a moment.

     If all this works well, send me mail at
telling me of your successes or woes.
