Contents of the READ.ME file

Full featured multiuser BBS designed for ease
of use. Includes btrieve indexed databases,
support for networks, RIP, NAPLPS, BIG, & CONDOR
graphics, FOSSIL, DigiBoard, NS16550A FIFO,
28.8 kbps, dynamic or custom built menus, ringback
for voice lines, callback, built-in and external
file transfer protocols, net and echo doors.
Easy ASCII text file configuration.
By Don Mankin, $49-$79, BBS 209-836-2402.

If supplied with the .EXE self extracting version:
Enter "MHST235 to unarchive the MHST235.EXE files to disk.


The EXE archive is not for distribution. A ZIPed archive is available for
distribution from the MEGAHOST Support BBS at 209-836-2402.

The self extracting file CANNOT unarchive to the disk it came on as there is
no room and you will get a 'Write Error'!

The MEGAHOST.DOC file can be printed on most Laser printers by setting the
lines per page to 66.


Sample RIP, NAPLPS, and BIG Graphics screens are available for download
from the MEGAHOST Support BBS at 209-836-2402. Also, a module enabling
various flavors of Xmodem, Ymodem, Zmodem, and Kermit file transfers is
available for download at no additional cost.



You MUST first set up a SYSOP= entry in the .CNF BEFORE INVOKING
MEGAHOST. The system will not function properly without this
entry. The syntax is:


where DON MANKIN is replaced with your own name.


If you wish to run a closed system, you must have
CLOSEDSYSTEM=N in the .CNF file when you log in as SysOp for
the first time. After MEGAHOST establishes your SysOp account
in the caller database, you may then make the CLOSEDSYSTEM=Y
entry in the .CNF file.


If you have trouble with MEGAHOST, try removing any memory resident software
you may have loaded. MEGAHOST is known to have trouble with DOS editors.

Enabling Xon/Xoff flow control within MEGAHOST sometimes confuses your
callers not familiar with it's usage. If enabled, and some line noise sends
a CTL-S (19 decimal), the callers terminal will freeze until a CTL-Q
(17 decimal) is received from the caller. If the caller is unaware of this
technique, he/she will eventually hang up and complain of BBS troubles.
See XONXOFF= in the MEGAHOST.DOC file for further details.

MEGAHOST REQUIRES character and line pacing on ASCII uploads and auto-logons.
This is accomplished using Procomm by typing ALT S, 6, and changing the
Pace Character = 62
Character Pacing = 50
Line Pacing = 5

Other terminal software must be configured likewise.


Utilities written to convert MAXIHOST database files to MEGAHOST database
files are available from the Support BBS. You should convert the Message
database if you had it enabled in MAXIHOST, but I would not convert the
user database. The best way to assure that all of the user fields are
populated is to allow MEGAHOST to create the user database itself.

A file transfer module, MHXFR.EXE, is available for download from the
Support BBS. It provides Xmodem, Ymodem, Zmodem, and Kermit file
transfer protocols. Put this file in the same directory(ies) as your
MEGAHOST.EXE file(s). This module is not bundled with the MEGAHOST
software but is available at no cost.

*** Regarding file transfer, high speed modems should have hardware flow
control enabled especially when the baud rate is locked. Callers failing
to do this may have VERY SLOW file transfers due to block resends. ***

A program, MEGA_API.EXE is available for EXPERIENCED MEGAHOST users to
enable them to be able to add/change .CNF entries, display text files,
disconnect the caller, etc. from BATCHON, BATCHOFF, TRAPDOOR, and EVENT
batch files. Use of this interface is on your own initiative. Minimum
support will be provided. Improper use of this facility could compromise
the security of the system. These features are being tested to see if
they provide any real value, and may be removed from future releases if
they prove too complex for the average user and/or support of them become
too time consuming.


REGISTERED USERS: Make sure you call the MEGAHOST support BBS occasionally
to keep abreast of new versions and updates. The number is currently
209-836-2402. I'm Sorry, but I do not have the resources to answer phone
calls, nor return mail. Please use this BBS as our communications vehicle.

Because MEGAHOST is a 'shop before you buy' Shareware product, most
registrants already have a copy of MEGAHOST. For this reason, diskettes
are not mailed out immediately, but are mailed out with the next release.
Releases vary but usually occur every month or two. You may request a
current release diskette be mailed instead by leaving a message on the
Support BBS. You may also request a REGISTRATION number to suffice you
until you receive your diskette. The registration information would be
entered into your MEGAHOST.CNF as follows:


where 32541 is the registration number provided by me that matches your
registration name of 'MEGAHOST Support BBS'.



If used for personal use, a Hobby registration is necessary. Use by
any organization for any purpose would be classified as a Commercial
registration. Hobby registrations are $49 USD, while Commercial
registrations are $79, still a good bargain. Only VISA, MasterCard
Diners Club, Carte Blanche, and JCB cards can be accepted via the
Support BBS - the prefered method. You may also register using your
AMEX and Discover Card by calling PSL at 800-242-4775 and refering
to item #10391. Diskettes are not normally mailed out until a new
release is made available. You may request a registration number be
left to you via this system, and/or that the current release be mailed
instead of waiting for the next one.

You may register by mail by sending your check (US Dollars Only) to:

Don Mankin
231 Market Place #353
San Ramon, CA 94583

Californians please add 7.75% sales tax.
Please include $4 shipping and handling.


P S L Specific

You may also order from the Public (software) Library with your VISA,
MC, AmEx, or Discover card by calling 800-2424-PsL, 713-524-6394, or
by FAX to 713-524-6398 or by CompuServe to 71355,470. The PSL numbers
are for ordering only. For information about dealer pricing, volume
discounts, site licensing, shipping of products, returns, latest
version number or other technical information, please call the
MEGAHOST Support BBS at 209-836-2402.



For those upgrading from MAXIHOST, please read the MAXIHOST to MEGAHOST
upgrade information contained in the .DOC file. You will find your MAXIHOST
registration number is incompatable with MEGAHOST so make sure you call the
Support BBS for your new number. Execute menu item 2 from the
(+)-Registration module.
