This is a combination of several programs available through other sources,
with some of the programs being shareware. Please read the doc files and
register as appropriate.
MINUET, PHONE, and UMSLIP are from the University of Minnesota. The other
programs are commonly available batch file utilities.
This package contains everything you need to set up a SLIP (Serial Line
Interface Protocol) connection to Internet. SLIP varies from an Internet
Shell Account in that the connection is made automatically and you are
issued a temporary IP (Internet Protocol) address for the duration of your
call. This is done through a handshake procedure known as BOOTP, which
passes certain information between your system and your host.
Make a directory on your C: drive called SLIP:
Make a subdirectory under \SLIP:
Copy all programs from wherever they are to the SLIP directory:
XCOPY C:\wherever *.*
Add two lines to your AUTOEXEC.BAT file:
(or whatever is appropriate for your timezone.)
C:\SLIP\UMSLIP.COM 0x60 2048
Reboot your machine.
Run PHONE SETUP
Press ALT-S and set up your modem and slip info. You will need to contact
your Internet provider to get some of the info.
Modify the script PHONE.CMD for your modem and the custom login portion.
Run MINUET SETUP
Press ALT-S and set up your slip info. You will need to contact your
Internet provider to get some of the info.
To run SLIP_DOS:
This will automatically call your provider at the number set up in PHONE
and use the login script PHONE.CMD. After the connection is complete, you
will be placed at a menu which gives you options of redialling if the
connection failed, hanging up, quitting the program, or calling up MINUET.
MINUET is a pretty good all-purpose set of Internet clients. All uploading
and downloading will be done from or to your machine rather than your host
