UPFRONT OpusLink is not a full-service modem program. It was
designed to use in conjunction with other software
(such as ProComm). About all you can do is type and
receive characters (dumb terminal) and send/receive
SeaLink file transfers.

IT UP To start OpusLink.....

Your setup... Type...
COM1 at 2400 baud OpusLink
COM1 at 1200 baud OpusLink -b1200
COM1 at 300 baud basica
COM2 at 2400 baud OpusLink -p2
COM2 at 1200 baud OpusLink -p2 -b1200
COM2 at 300 baud chkdsk /f

CONTROLS Alt-B ... flips baud (300/1200/2400)

Alt-X ... exit to DOS

Alt-H ... hangup the phone (disconnect)

... upload a file using SeaLink

... download a file using SeaLink

... during a file transfer, you can cancel the
download or upload by pressing the Escape key.

NOTE: All other characters are passed on to your modem.

PROCOMM If you are using ProComm as your main modem program
to call Opus, you can get to OpusLink like this...

1. Press Alt-F4 to get to Dos.

2. Type OpusLink (see "Getting It Up" above)
Assuming OpusLink is available, it will
spring to life.

To get back to ProComm from OpusLink...

1. Press Alt-X to leave OpusLink.

2. Type EXIT and press Enter to leave the
DOS "shell".

3. ProComm should reappear

  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:
