------------------------------------------------------------------------------

You have a long list of BBS numbers in your dialing directory. With that,
you've got a long list of passwords to remember. You can enter them right in
the directory itself, but you still have to go check what the password is...
This was really starting to annoy me. Having to re-enter the dialing-directory
and using the toggle option to get to see my password for that particular BBS,
and all of that while being connected!!! There has got to be a better way!


NOW THERE IS...


This is a little script I wrote using the very powerful SALT(TM) script
programming language from Exis Inc.(c) for TELIX(c) 3.12 . What this script
does is use the passwords you entered in the dialing directory to program
a function key of your choice. It also programs another function key of your
choice with your username. After having connected with the BBS or other
computer system, the script will program your function key with the
appropriate password from the dialing directory, print a message on the
screen and sound an alarm. It will continue ringing until the user presses
a key on the keyboard. Once this is done, the user will enter terminal mode.
He then goes on with his regular BBS duties. The script file turns itself off
and stops running. I have added the option of displaying the name of the
system to which you are presently logged-on. The name of the system will be
displayed on the status-line, over the "Press ALT-Z for help" message.
One restriction, for this to work, you must configure TELIX to display the
status-line on the BOTTOM of the screen.


------------------------------------------------------------------------------
AUTO-PASS SETUP
------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Setting up the script is very easy. Just copy all the files that were
contained in the archive to the directory which contains the TELIX system
files. Make sure you copy the file AUTOPASS.SLC to the appropriate directory
as mentioned in your system configuration. You can find this by pressing
[ALT-O] while in terminal mode, and then choosing the 'FILENAMES AND PATHS'
option on the menu that appears on your screen.
After you have copied the files, from DOS and in the sub-directory
which contains the TELIX system files, type AUTOCFG and press .
This program will enable you to configure AUTOPASS. The program is simple to
use and self-explanitory. One of the options will enable you to modify
your dialing directory in order for every system in your directory to take
advantage of AUTOPASS.
The setup is now complete!



------------------------------------------------------------------------------
USING AUTOPASS
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

AUTOPASS is fully automatic. After you have installed it, it works by
itself! It's this easy:

Use the dialing directory to call any BBS or computer system. You can
use the redial options and you can use the dialing queue too. When a
connection is made, AUTOPASS will start running and inform you that you are
on-line. Log on to the BBS as you would normally. When the system asks for
your NAME, simply PRESS THE APPROPRIATE FUNCTION-KEY. When you are asked for
your PASSWORD, just PRESS THE ASSIGNED KEY ON YOUR KEYBOARD. This will send the
your name and the password that corresponds to the BBS or system reached.
It's that easy!

GIVE CREDIT WHERE CREDIT IS DUE
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I would like to use this space to thank EXIS Inc. for such a great
product. TELIX 3.12 is just a dream come true. Teamed up with an incredible
script programming language, this communications package is hard to beat.
Another thing I like is where this package is from: CANADA. Having been born
and raised in Montreal, Canada I can't help but feel patriotic...

  1. Very nice! Thank you for this wonderful archive. I wonder why I found it only now. Long live the BBS file archives!

  2. This is so awesome! 😀 I’d be cool if you could download an entire archive of this at once, though.

  3. But one thing that puzzles me is the “mtswslnkmcjklsdlsbdmMICROSOFT” string. There is an article about it here. It is definitely worth a read: http://www.os2museum.com/wp/mtswslnk/
