SHORT VERSION

HS/Link Bi-directional Protocol. HS/Link is a high speed, single and
bi-directional file transfer protocol with many advanced features. It is
EASY to set up and runs very fast with all kinds of modems. Now includes
ONLINE CHAT mode. FHSLINK.EXE now supports FOSSIL drivers. See HS-INST##.ZIP
for install instructions.


EXTENDED VERSION

HS/Link is a file transfer protocol driver capable of simultaneous "CHAT",
transmission of computer files, and reception of files, at high speeds.
HS/Link has built-in error correction and is easily installed in most
telecommunication programs and bulletin board systems. Bidirectional file
transfer means that uploading and downloading of files can take place
simultaneously, thus reducing file transfer time up to 50% on many long
distance phone calls.

The HS/Link protocol is now used on thousands of bulletin board systems
worldwide, and is frequently used to transport large volumes of message
traffic in echo networks.

COMMERCIAL DISTRIBUTION LICENSE AGREEMENT
------------------------------------------------------------------------

The terms below outline requirements for commercial distribution. By
"commercial distribution" or "commerically distribute" we mean to distribute
for gain (such as, but not limited to, via traditional shareware catalogs,
trade shows, or rack vending). This file will inform the potential
commercial distributor as to whether or not they have been automatically
granted such a license for their type of distribution (if not, special
written authorization is required). Other important information is also
presented.

This is an agreement between you (either an individual or an entity) and THE
TOOL SHOP. By commercially distributing copies of the shareware evaluation
version of HIGH SPEED LINK, you are agreeing to be bound by the terms of this
agreement. If you do not agree to the terms of this agreement, you may not
distribute the shareware evaluation version of HIGH SPEED LINK.

1) COPYRIGHT: The shareware evaluation version of HIGH SPEED LINK (hereafter,
"the SOFTWARE") is Copyright 1991-1993 by Samuel H. Smith and is protected by
United States copyright laws and international treaty provisions. THE TOOL
SHOP, as exclusive publisher, is an authorized representative of the
copyright holder. Except to the extent expressly licensed, the copyright
holder has and reserves the exclusive copyright and other right, title, and
interest to copy and distribute this software, and the right to use the
Trademarks "HS/Link" and "HIGH SPEED LINK" in connection with it.

2) DISTRIBUTION VIA CATALOGS: Catalog vendors are automatically granted a
license to distribute the SOFTWARE via their catalog for a fee provided they
agree to abide by the following terms:

a) A copy of the first catalog or listing advertising the distribution of
the SOFTWARE will be sent to THE TOOL SHOP.

b) The catalog or listing must contain a statement to the effect that the
SOFTWARE is not free, and that additional payment to the
author/publisher is required after a stated evaluation period. (The
standard statement required by the Association of Shareware
Professionals is sufficient.)

c) Updated versions of the SOFTWARE sent to the distributor will be
reflected in what is distributed and advertised in the catalog or
listing as soon as possible.

d) Problems or complaints about the SOFTWARE will be reported to THE TOOL
SHOP.

3) DISTRIBUTION VIA CD-ROM: CD-ROM vendors are automatically granted a
license to distribute the SOFTWARE via their CD-ROM for a fee provided they
agree to abide by the following terms:

a) The CD-ROM must contain a statement to the effect that the SOFTWARE is
not free, and that additional payment to the author/publisher is
required after a stated evaluation period. (The standard statement
required by the Association of Shareware Professionals is sufficient.)

b) Updated versions of the SOFTWARE sent to the distributor will be
reflected in what is distributed and advertised in the CD-ROM or listing
as soon as possible.

c) Problems or complaints about the SOFTWARE will be reported to THE TOOL
SHOP.

4) ALL OTHER TYPES OF DISTRIBUTION: Distribution of the SOFTWARE using any
other method (for example: via rack vending methods, sale in a retail store,
sale at a trade show, as part of some more inclusive product or service,
rental or lease) requires special written authorization from THE TOOL SHOP,
which may be subject to special licensing terms. No vendor, individual,
group, or entity has a license to distribute the SOFTWARE using any other
method without special written authorization from THE TOOL SHOP. (NOTE: "as
part of some more inclusive product or service" does not refer to
distribution via any type of BBS or the practice by certain catalog vendors
of offering several programs on a single diskette or in a set of multiple
diskettes.)

5) MODIFICATIONS: The SOFTWARE package may not be abridged or otherwise
modified in any way. (NOTE: This does not refer to the addition of
installation, informational, or advertising files.)

6) REVOCATION OF LICENSE: The license to distribute the SOFTWARE can be
revoked from any vendor, individual, group, or entity at any time for any
reason on 90 days advance written notice.

7) DAMAGES: Distribution of the SOFTWARE without a license to do so is
explicitly prohibited. Liquidated damages for unauthorized distribution
shall not be less than $2.00 (in U.S. funds) for each individual copy of the
SOFTWARE that is sold or transferred by the vendor, individual, group, or
entity without a license to do so.

8) THIS PACKAGE (CONSISTING OF THE HIGH SPEED LINK SOFTWARE AND ASSOCIATED
FILES AND DOCUMENTATION) IS PROVIDED "AS IS" WITHOUT REPRESENTATION OR
WARRANTY OF ANY KIND, EITHER EXPRESSED OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING WITHOUT
LIMITATION, ANY REPRESENTATIONS OR ENDORSEMENTS REGARDING THE USE OF, THE
RESULTS OF, OR PERFORMANCE OF; ITS APPROPRIATENESS, ACCURACY, RELIABILITY, OR
CURRENTNESS. THE ENTIRE RISK AS TO THE USE OF THIS PACKAGE IS ASSUMED BY THE
USER. IN NO EVENT WILL THE TOOL SHOP BE LIABLE FOR ANY DAMAGES, DIRECT,
INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, OR CONSEQUENTIAL, RESULTING FROM ANY DEFECT IN THE
PACKAGE, EVEN IF THE TOOL SHOP HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH
DAMAGES. ANY AND ALL USE OF THIS PACKAGE, FOR ANY PURPOSE, WITH NO REGARD TO
THE LEGALITY OF SUCH USE OR PURPOSE, IS THE COMPLETE AND SOLE RESPONSIBILITY
OF THE USER. Some states do not allow disclaimers of implied warranties or
the exclusion of consequential damages, so the above disclaimers and
exclusions may not apply to you.

9) GOVERNING LAW: This agreement is governed by the laws of the State of
California. Should any parts or parts of this agreement be deemed unlawful,
the remainder shall to continue to apply.

  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/
