A Note From the Author

I wrote NETPWD about a year ago for fun, and never dreamed that I would talk to
as many persons as I have in the last year. CADENCE magazine was kind enough
to give it a really nice review, and I have had calls from New Zealand to the
Netherlands.

NETPWD is not public domain. It is not Shareware. It is "egoware". (a term I
stole) If you like it, tell Autodesk to include it in 12c3 or to write it into
Release 13 in the summer 1994. Or, FAX my boss, and tell him I need a vast
raise! To say thanks to all of you fans of NETPWD, and to thank you for your
patience through a couple of buggy releases, I have made this version to work
with AutoCAD Release 12 for Windows. (Autodesk was kind enough to change the
ACAD.PWD file only a teensie bit this time!)

Thanks Again!

Dedication

This version is also dedicated to Christal, Brian, Jeff and all the other
Autodesk support persons who answer my stupid questions on Compuserve every day.

Compuserve and The Autodesk Global Village, have been the fastest, most accurate
sources of information, that I have had this year!

NETPWD 1.2


Network ACAD.PWD Log Utility for AutoCAD Release 11, 12 and 12 for Windows!
(c) COPYRIGHT NECAD Northside, Inc. 1990, 1991, 1992 ALL RIGHTS RESERVED

INTRODUCTION

NET11, NET12 & NETWIN are utilites that help you manage the logins on a
multi-node AutoCAD package. If a person crashes AutoCAD and stays logged into
the ACAD.PWD file, you can use these utilities to repair that PWD file with-
out having to log other users off of the network, or reconfiguring AutoCAD!

These executables can also be used to repair a single node version of AutoCAD,
if you are receiving errors at the time of login like: Maximum number of users
has been reached, or Login XXXX already in use.

NET11 & NET12 ARE FREEWARE, with one exception. If you decide you like NET11 &
NET12, all we ask is that you visit our bulletin board and contribute an AutoCAD
related upload! The NECAD BBS is a 24hr Wildcat! BBS. Non-AutoCAD user's are
restricted on the board durring normal business hours.

When you unpack NETPWD you will see five files:

NETPWD.DOC (This document file)
NET12.EXE The Release 12 version of the executable.
NET11.EXE The Release 11 version of the executable.
NETWIN.EXE The Release 12 Windows version of the executable.
NETPWD.PIF A sample "PIF" file, if you want to run NETWIN from Windows
as a NON-Windows application. (I haven't bought the Windows
libraries yet!)


RUNNING NETPWD

NET11, or NET12 can be placed inside your AutoCAD directory or the dir-
ectory that contains the ACAD.PWD file, or place the NET11 or NET12.EXE
file in a directory that is in your path ie.

\BIN \DOS ect...

To run:

Just type NET11 or NET12 from the directory that the ACAD.PWD is in.
NETPWD will list the users logged in to that PWD file and show you which
nodes are "Logged Out". You press the node number to log out a node that
should not be there.

A line entry, on the menu, that is preceeded by a number, is a logged in node.
An entry with a number, bank login name and the words "-Logged Out-" is an
entry that has been freed up with NETPWD. An entry missing the first letter
of the login name and the words "-Logged Out-" is a clean log out made by
AutoCAD.

NETWIN.EXE run exactly the same way. You also can run it from Windows as a Non-
Windows application. Use the Sample NETPWD.PIF as an example for setting it up.
Like NET11 & NET12, NETWIN can be put in the path so that only the network
administrator has access to it.

WARNING:

If you log out a user that is currently working in AutoCAD it will cause him
to crash as soon as he uses the SAVE or PLOT command. He will be able to save
his changes, but he will have to restart AutoCAD to continue!

I is always a good idea to BACK UP YOUR ACAD.PWD! I usually make a copy in a
directory called PWD_SAVE. This must be done when all users are logged out of
AutoCAD.

IF YOU USE THIS PRACTICE ON A SINGLE USER VERSION OF AUTOCAD, YOU WILL NEVER NEED
THE SERVICES OF NETPWD. Just copy the good ACAD.PWD back into the ACAD
directory. Since you are the only user on the network, this can't crash anyone
else.
