ProComm Plus Host Mode Help

While in Host Mode, you have the following options:

F)iles: displays the files available for downloading
U)pload: displays the nine upload transfer protocols available
D)ownload: displays the nine download transfer protocols available
H)elp: displays this file
T)ime: displays the time you logged on and the current time
C)hat: alerts me that you would like to 'chat' via keyboard
G)oodbye: logs you off the system and terminates your call
R)ead Mail: allows you to read posted public messages
L)eave Mail: allows you to post public or private messages

You may also have these two restricted options, at the Sysop's discretion:

S)hell: puts you into DOS, giving you control over my computer
A)bort: causes ProComm to terminate Host Mode


There are nine transfer protocols available for uploading and downloading:


A)SCII: USE FOR TEXT FILES ONLY; no transfer error checking

K)ermit: universal transfer protocol, with error checking; often
transfers files very slowly

X)modem: error checking protocol, but can transfer only one file
at a time; requires both computers to be set to NO
parity, 8 data bits, 1 stop bit (-N-8-1)

T)elink: Xmodem variant that allows for batch (multiple file)
transfers, using wildcards; same requirements as Xmodem

S)ealink: 'sliding window' Xmodem variant, with error checking;
usually much faster than Xmodem; permits batch file
transfers using wildcards (* and ?) in the filename;
same requirements as Xmodem

W)xmodem: 'sliding window' Xmodem variant, with error checking;
usually much faster than Xmodem; same requirements as
Xmodem

Y)modem Batch: 'large data block' Xmodem variant; with error checking;
the larger data blocks make it much faster than Xmodem
except over very noisy telephone lines; permits batch
(multiple file) transfers by using wildcards (* and ?)
in the filename, or transfer only a single file by
by entering a complete name; when downloading, choose
'YMODEM' on your program's transfer menu; same
requirements as Xmodem

G)Ymodem-G Batch: like Ymodem Batch, but uses hardware (modem) error
checking for much greater speed; requires an ARQ or MNP
capable modem for BOTH caller and host

I)modem: like Xmodem, but uses hardware (modem) error checking
for much greater speed; requires an ARQ or MNP capable
modem for BOTH caller and host

  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/
