Host/Terminal

HTERM is a simple terminal. It has the basic features required for managing
your communication needs, plus a few very unique features.

The only files you really need to operate HTERM are...

HTERM.EXE
HTERMZ.EXE

If you want to use HTERM as a host, it's nice to have the help file but
not really required.

HOST.HLP


Whether you are in need of a terminal for calling BBS's and transfer files
with ZMODEM (a very fast transfer protocol) - or you are a consultant and need
to have access to other peoples computers via modem for Client Support - or
you want to allow callers to have access to your computer and communicate
with you or transfer files, HTERM is for you.

Consultants can also have their client call them as a HOST giving you the
control of the clients system for support purposes. When your client dials,
your system, there is a normal dial function selected by pressing F4, or the
"Dial Remote as Host" function which is accessed by pressing F5. This can
save you absorbing and/or tracking long distance phone charges.

It also has a full HOST support mode where it will answer the phone, screen
callers for a password, etc. Like a MINI BBS. If a SysOp Password is
implemented then if the command SYSOP is entered at the command prompt on the
host menu, the user is prompted for the SysOp Password which provides access
to SysOp functions.

HTERM uses ZMODEM protocol for file transfers.

NOTE: Also see HOST.HLP which documents the host commands.

Just run HTERM and it will set itself up.
Press F1 when in the terminal for a list of features and key assignments.
Here are the command line options which can automatically start the system
as a host, set screen preferences, etc.


USE: HTERM command

Commands:

/B = force Black & White mode.
/43 = force 43 line screen mode.
/50 = force 50 line screen mode.
/HOST = automatically go into Host Mode and wait for callers.
/CPpassword = automatically inserts CALLER password if using /HOST
/SPpassword = automatically inserts SYSOP password if using /HOST

ie: HTERM /HOST /CPbear /SPyard /50

HTERM encrypts your phone directory passwords in your data files for security,
and requires a system password to operate. If you run HTERM with a command
line of # it will display your passwords in the phone directory (for
maintenance purposes).

HTERM has logon macros for NAME and PASSWORD for fast logons. When you have
connected with a HOST system as a terminal, the system will chime, and show
you at what baud rate you have connected. You are also reminded of the macro
keys to insert your name and/or password automatically.

Note: When connecting to another system (Alt+N) and (Alt+P) insert your
Name and Password for you (as if typed at the keyboard).



Installation details:

If you set an environment variable called COMMON you can have your terminal
files HTERM.EXE, HTERMZ.EXE, HTERM.CFG, HTERM.DIR, HOST.HLP and HOST.BUL on
any directory in your path identified using COMMON. This allows operation
of HTERM from anywhere on your system. Add this to your system autoexec.bat
file...

SET COMMON=C:\TERM\

... where "C:\TERM\" is any one of your path directories.

If you choose not to use this environment variable, further references
to your COMMON path will be the current path you are on when you run HTERM.

Just run HTERM and it will set itself up.

You should also have this statement in your CONFIG.SYS file...

DEVICE=C:\DOS\ANSI.SYS


Commands in Terminal mode... (this is the F1 HELP screen)

F1=Displays this screen
F2=Shells to DOS (or Alt+J)
F3=Creates/Appends a capture file of your session
F4=Dialing (Add, Remove, Edit, or Dial [or Dial as Host])
F5=Activate HOST/CHAT mode [if connected with another terminal]
F6=Insert text file (as if typed at the keyboard)
F7=Toggles 25/50 line mode
F8=Send (UPLOAD) a file using Zmodem protocol
F9=Receive (DOWNLOAD) a file using Zmodem protocol
F10=EXIT/HANGUP (or Alt+X)
(Alt+A)=Set modem to Auto Answer mode
(Alt+H)=Hangup modem
(Alt+I)=Initialize modem
(Alt+F5)=Switch to HOST mode [Auto Answer/wait for caller mode]
(Alt+F9)=Change current baud
(Alt+F10)=Toggle from N81 to E71 port settings
(Alt+S)=Setup
Note: When connecting to another system (Alt+N) and (Alt+P) insert your
Name and Password for you (as if typed at the keyboard).


Misc:

To switch from Voice to Data, one caller must type ATD and press then hangup
their phone, then the other caller must type ATA and press and then hangup.
To switch from Data to Voice, each caller must pick up the phone, then press
Alt+H to hangup the modem.


HOST MODE:

If you have a text file (optional) called HOST.TTL in your COMMON path the
system will clear the screen and display it as your logo screen when the user
is prompted to enter name and password.

If you have a text file (optional) called HOST.BUL in your COMMON path the
system will display it as your Bulletin when selected (B) by the caller.

This screen shows the HOST MENU when HTERM is in host mode.

SYSOP COMMANDS: F1=CHAT F2=SHELL F3=CAPTURE (CHAT MODE) F10=HANG UP

G)oodbye (log off) ?) HELP with commands


Command:_

In this mode, the H)ost files allows access to the current directory only,
and D)ownload's are restricted to the current directory. Note: If you use
a program called HLIST.EXE, or have a text file called HLIST.LST on your
download directory which contians a list of available files, it will be
displayed instead. This allows masking of the files listed. HLIST is a
text file that contains a list of files (user defined) with descriptions.

When a message is entered, it is always a private message to the SYSOP and is
contained in a file called HOST.LOG in the COMMON directory. This file also
contains a log of hterm activities ie logon's, uploads, and downloads.

This screen shows the HOST MENU when HTERM is in host mode and the SYSOP
command is entred at the command line, and then the sysop access password was
entered correctly.
