Introduction
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

With LAN HIJACK you can ....
--------------------------------------------------------------------------

Hijack work stations to provide instant support for network
users. You have full access to their screen and keyboard to
step them through any problem.

Hijack modems, FAX boards, printers, CD ROMS and tape backups
attached to other work stations.

Hold network-wide computer conferences and training seminars.

Hijack any work station and run any program for real
multiprocessor multitasking!

Example Scenarios
--------------------------------------------------------------------------

LAN HIJACK for Network Support

Jack's in his new spread sheet program and can't remember how
to generate a 3D bar graph. So he presses the LAN HIJACK
HELP HOT KEY. Jill, the company spread sheet guru, is
writing up a letter in her word processor when her computer
sounds the LAN HIJACK help alarm. She presses the LAN HIJACK
HOT KEY and then the F2 key, and instantly she is in jack's
spreadsheet. With a few keystrokes she whips out the graph,
then HOT KEYS right back to her letter.

LAN HIJACK for Sharing Hardware.

Jill needs to FAX out her letter. But the FAX board is in
the computer downs stairs. So she presses the LAN HIJACK HOT
KEY and "hijack's" that station. Then runs up the FAX
program and sends the FAX. Then HOT KEYS right back to her
word processor.

LAN HIJACK for Training Seminars

Jill needs to train her staff on their new accounts
receivable software. So she hosts a LAN HIJACK conference.
From her station she steps through the tricky parts of
entering a receivable. And all of her staff can watch her
from their work stations.

LAN HIJACK for MultiProcessor MultiTasking

Jack has to print out several reports before he can leave for
the night. Instead of waiting for his station to print the
reports one at a time, he "hijacks" another station and
starts it printing one report. Then "hijacks" another
station to print another report. And on and on, putting all
available stations on the network to work on his job. All at
the same time! With LAN HIJACK the full power of your network
is available at your station.

Key Features
--------------------------------------------------------------------------

Selection by Station Name and User Name

Remote stations can easily be identified by station name and
the user name who is logged in.

Wide Area Networks

On your wide area network you can hijack a station next door
or across the country!

Conferencing

You may hold conferences, conferences sharing your display
with several other stations on your local network.

Security Control with NetWare

NetWare's security system determines which users may "hijack"
a station. And which stations a user may "hijack". This
security is assigned using NetWare's SYSCON utility. LAN
HIJACK can be optionally configured to alert users when their
station is being hijacked. And each user may enable and
disable hijacking of their stations via a HOT KEY.

Easy to Use

Selection and control of another station is intuitive and
simple to learn.

Keyboard Lock Out

When you "hijack" a station you may lock it's keyboard,
giving you exclusive use of that station.

"hijack" stations with different display adapters.

Help Alarm

Users can call for assistance by pressing the HELP HOT KEY.

Memory Resident

Both sides of LAN HIJACK are memory resident, using as little
as 4 kbytes in the remote station.

Removable

The memory resident portions of LAN HIJACK can be removed
from memory without rebooting.

The LAN HIJACK Programs
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

LHJ.EXE for Hijackers and LHR.EXE for Hijackees
--------------------------------------------------------------------------

LAN HIJACK uses two memory resident programs, LHJ.EXE and
LHR.EXE. When you run either program from the DOS
commandline they are "loaded" and return the DOS prompt
immediately. Once loaded, to activate the program you must
press a HOT KEY combination. You select the HOT KEY
combinations when LAN HIJACK is installed.

When LHJ.EXE is loaded on a station, then this master station
can "hijack" and control other stations. However, the
station can not be "hijacked" by another station.

When LHR.EXE is loaded on a station, then this station can be
"hijacked" and controlled by another station. However, the
station can not "hijack" other stations.

When both LHR.EXE and LHJ.EXE are loaded on the same station,
then the station may "hijack" other stations and the station
can be "hijacked" by other stations.



Requirements
--------------------------------------------------------------------------

A Novell NetWare network with PC/AT/PS2/PS1 work stations or
close compatibles. And DOS version 3.0 or higher.

Installation and Setup
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

First you must use the LHSETUP program to install your
server. After initial installation, you may use the LHSETUP
program to change or maintain LAN HIJACK's options.

Then prepare your workstation's boot disks to automatically
load the LAN HIJACK programs.


Recommended Installation Steps
--------------------------------------------------------------------------

1. Login to your network as SUPERVISOR.

2. Insure you have read and write access to the LAN HIJACK
files.

3. Complete the install program, by running LHSETUP ( see
below ).

4. Copy the LHR.EXE and LHJ.EXE program files to the LOGIN
directory.

5. For each work station that will be "hijacked" add the
command LHR to the station's AUTOEXEC.BAT file. You may
name the station by placing the station's name on the
commandline. For example :

IPX
NETX
F:
LHR "Jacks Office"

6. For each work station that will "hijack" remote stations
add the command LHJ to the AUTOEXEC.BAT file. If a work
station is to have both LHR and LHJ loaded, then LHR must
be loaded first. For example :

IPX
NETX
F:
LHR "Jill's Office"
LHJ

7. Reboot each workstation to load the LAN HIJACK
programs.

LAN HIJACK is now ready to use on your network.

Using LHSETUP to Install LAN HIJACK
--------------------------------------------------------------------------

The LAN HIJACK HOT KEY

This is the hot key you will use to activate the memory
resident LHJ program. And when connected to a remote station
this hot key will return you to the LAN HIJACK screen.
Select a convenient hot key combination from those shown.

Help HOT KEY

This hot key is optional. Remote stations can call for
assistance with this HOT KEY. When a remote user presses
this hot key each station with LHJ loaded ( on the local
network ) will beep twice, notifying Hijackers someone needs
help. A Hijacker can then activate LAN HIJACK and press
the F2 key to connect to the calling station.

Privacy HOT KEY

This hot key is optional. Remote stations can disable and
enable hijacking of their stations with this HOT KEY. This
is a toggle key, when first pressed it disables hijacking,
then when pressed again re-enables hijacking.


Your Remote Station Names
--------------------------------------------------------------------------

On the LAN HIJACK screen remote stations are displayed by
name and user name ( if a user is logged in there ).

You may set the station name on the commandline. When LHR is
loaded at a remote station just add a name for the station on
the commandline. For example :

LHR "Jack's Office"

Or you may use LHSETUP to change station names and the
order of the stations on the LAN HIJACK screen. Just run
LHSETUP and select Station Names.

Security Controls
--------------------------------------------------------------------------

You may use NetWare's security system to limit users of LAN
HIJACK, by creating two user groups, THE_HIJACKERS and
THE_UNHIJACKABLES, with SYSCON. ( For assistance with SYSCON
refer to your NetWare manuals. )

If you create THE_HIJACKERS group on your server, then only
members of THE_HIJACKERS group can "hijack" other stations.
A user who is NOT a member of THE_HIJACKERS group can NOT
activate LAN HIJACK and can NOT "hijack" any stations.

And if you create THE_HIJACKERS group then LAN HIJACK adheres
to NetWare's station restrictions for each user. So that a
user can only "hijack" a work station if the user has login
privileges to that station.

If you do not create THE_HIJACKERS group then all users may
activate LAN HIJACK, without station restrictions.

Also, you may create THE_UNHIJACKABLES group. Members of
this group simply can not be "hijacked".

Using LAN HIJACK
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

LHJ for Hijackers
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

LAN HIJACK can be used on any station that has loaded
LHJ.EXE, or by running LHJ from the DOS prompt. And the user
currently logged in at the station must be a member of
THE_HIJACKERS group, if you have created this group.

To invoke LAN HIJACK when loaded, press and hold the hot key
combination you selected during installation until your
computer beeps twice. Or to run LAN HIJACK from a DOS
prompt, run LHJ with the -N ( Non-Resident ) option. In a
moment the LAN HIJACK screen will be displayed.

Selecting A Remote Station

On the LAN HIJACK screen is a selector box listing the remote
stations by name, and the user's name, if a user is currently
logged in at the station. To select a station move the
selector bar to a remote station with the up and down arrow
keys. Stations that are dimmed or not highlightable can not
be "hijacked".

You may also browse through your network with the left and
right arrow keys. Here however each remote station's display
will be shown on your screen.

Once you have selected a remote station you can "hijack it",
that is connect to it and take control, by pressing the ENTER
key. You can now use the station.

To return to the LAN HIJACK screen press the LAN HIJACK HOT
KEY. You may select another station or exit LAN HIJACK and
return to your station.

F6 Host/Join Conference

You may share your display with others on your local network
with conferencing. To host a conference, press the F6 key
from the LAN HIJACK screen. You will then exit LAN HIJACK
and your display will be available to all stations that join
the conference. Any other station on the network can join
the conference by pressing the F6 key from their LAN HIJACK
screen. When joining a conference there are no station
restrictions. To end a conference just return to the LAN
HIJACK SCREEN on the hosting station. Note to host a
conference you must have both LHJ and LHR loaded.

F7 Send Message

You may send a message to the selected station by pressing
the F7 function key. You will be given an edit box to enter
your message. Then the message will be sent to the selected
station via NetWare's message service.

F10 Exit

Pressing F10 or ESC will exit LAN HIJACK and return control
to your station.

Removing LHJ from Memory

You may remove the LHJ resident program with the -r
commandline option. For example, at the commandline enter :

LHJ -r

Networks with Several File Servers

LAN HIJACK allows you to hijack any station connected to a
given server. This means you can hijack any station on your
network, provided the station has connected to your selected
file server. The name of your selected file server is shown
on the LAN HIJACK screen. And you may hijack any station
connected to this server.

LAN HIJACK will attempt to connect to your default server.
If you wish to override this use the /S switch. For example,
to select a file server called ACCOUNTING :

LHJ /SACCOUNTING
LHR /SACCOUNTING

Display Compatibility

When LAN HIJACK is used between two computers with different
display adapters, LAN HIJACK makes a best attempt to
translate the display. There are some combinations of
display adapters and modes that are not translatable. In
these cases LAN HIJACK will display the message "Display mode
Not Supported." You still have control of the station's
keyboard but can not see the screen.

LHR for Hijackees
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Once LHR has been loaded, a station may be "hijacked". Users
at remote stations have little interaction with LAN HIJACK,
other than calling for help and disabling/enabling hijacking
of their station.

Calling for Help

If you have installed the HELP HOT KEY, users may use this
key to call for assistance from LHJ stations. When any user
presses the HELP HOT KEY each station with LHJ loaded ( on
the local network ) will beep twice. The LHJ user can
activate LAN HIJACK and then press the F2 key to connect to
the calling station.

Privacy

If you installed the Disable/Enable HIJACK HOT KEY, then
users at each station can disable or enable hijacking of
their station. This HOT KEY is a toggle switch. Pressing
this hot key the first time will disable hijacking of their
station. The next press of this hot key will enable
hijacking of their station.

Hijack Alert

If the hijack alert has been installed, a remote station will
beep every few seconds while being hijacked.

Removing LHR from Memory

You may remove the LHR memory resident program with the -r
commandline option. For example, at the commandline enter:
LHR -r

The LAN HIJACK Programs
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

LHJ.EXE for Hijackers and LHR.EXE for Hijackees
--------------------------------------------------------------------------

LAN HIJACK uses two memory resident programs, LHJ.EXE and
LHR.EXE. When you run either program from the DOS
commandline they are "loaded" and return the DOS prompt
immediately. Once loaded, to activate the program you must
press a HOT KEY combination. You select the HOT KEY
combinations when LAN HIJACK is installed.

When LHJ.EXE is loaded on a station, then this master station
can "hijack" and control other stations. However, the
station can not be "hijacked" by another station.

When LHR.EXE is loaded on a station, then this station can be
"hijacked" and controlled by another station. However, the
station can not "hijack" other stations.

When both LHR.EXE and LHJ.EXE are loaded on the same station,
then the station may "hijack" other stations and the station
can be "hijacked" by other stations.



Requirements
--------------------------------------------------------------------------

A Novell NetWare network with PC/AT/PS2/PS1 work stations or
close compatibles. And DOS version 3.0 or higher.

Installation and Setup
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

First you must use the LHSETUP program to install your
server. After initial installation, you may use the LHSETUP
program to change or maintain LAN HIJACK's options.

Then prepare your workstation's boot disks to automatically
load the LAN HIJACK programs.


Recommended Installation Steps
--------------------------------------------------------------------------

1. Login to your network as SUPERVISOR.

2. Insure you have read and write access to the LAN HIJACK
files.

3. Complete the install program, by running LHSETUP ( see
below ).

4. Copy the LHR.EXE and LHJ.EXE program files to the LOGIN
directory.

5. For each work station that will be "hijacked" add the
command LHR to the station's AUTOEXEC.BAT file. You may
name the station by placing the station's name on the
commandline. For example :

IPX
NETX
F:
LHR "Jacks Office"

6. For each work station that will "hijack" remote stations
add the command LHJ to the AUTOEXEC.BAT file. If a work
station is to have both LHR and LHJ loaded, then LHR must
be loaded first. For example :

IPX
NETX
F:
LHR "Jill's Office"
LHJ

7. Reboot each workstation to load the LAN HIJACK
programs.

LAN HIJACK is now ready to use on your network.

Using LHSETUP to Install LAN HIJACK
--------------------------------------------------------------------------

The LAN HIJACK HOT KEY

This is the hot key you will use to activate the memory
resident LHJ program. And when connected to a remote station
this hot key will return you to the LAN HIJACK screen.
Select a convenient hot key combination from those shown.

Help HOT KEY

This hot key is optional. Remote stations can call for
assistance with this HOT KEY. When a remote user presses
this hot key each station with LHJ loaded ( on the local
network ) will beep twice, notifying Hijackers someone needs
help. A Hijacker can then activate LAN HIJACK and press
the F2 key to connect to the calling station.

Privacy HOT KEY

This hot key is optional. Remote stations can disable and
enable hijacking of their stations with this HOT KEY. This
is a toggle key, when first pressed it disables hijacking,
then when pressed again re-enables hijacking.


Your Remote Station Names
--------------------------------------------------------------------------

On the LAN HIJACK screen remote stations are displayed by
name and user name ( if a user is logged in there ).

You may set the station name on the commandline. When LHR is
loaded at a remote station just add a name for the station on
the commandline. For example :

LHR "Jack's Office"

Or you may use LHSETUP to change station names and the
order of the stations on the LAN HIJACK screen. Just run
LHSETUP and select Station Names.

Security Controls
--------------------------------------------------------------------------

You may use NetWare's security system to limit users of LAN
HIJACK, by creating two user groups, THE_HIJACKERS and
THE_UNHIJACKABLES, with SYSCON. ( For assistance with SYSCON
refer to your NetWare manuals. )

If you create THE_HIJACKERS group on your server, then only
members of THE_HIJACKERS group can "hijack" other stations.
A user who is NOT a member of THE_HIJACKERS group can NOT
activate LAN HIJACK and can NOT "hijack" any stations.

And if you create THE_HIJACKERS group then LAN HIJACK adheres
to NetWare's station restrictions for each user. So that a
user can only "hijack" a work station if the user has login
privileges to that station.

If you do not create THE_HIJACKERS group then all users may
activate LAN HIJACK, without station restrictions.

Also, you may create THE_UNHIJACKABLES group. Members of
this group simply can not be "hijacked".

Using LAN HIJACK
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

LHJ for Hijackers
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

LAN HIJACK can be used on any station that has loaded
LHJ.EXE, or by running LHJ from the DOS prompt. And the user
currently logged in at the station must be a member of
THE_HIJACKERS group, if you have created this group.

To invoke LAN HIJACK when loaded, press and hold the hot key
combination you selected during installation until your
computer beeps twice. Or to run LAN HIJACK from a DOS
prompt, run LHJ with the -N ( Non-Resident ) option. In a
moment the LAN HIJACK screen will be displayed.

Selecting A Remote Station

On the LAN HIJACK screen is a selector box listing the remote

Networks with Several File Servers

LAN HIJACK allows you to hijack any station connected to a
given server. This means you can hijack any station on your
network, provided the station has connected to your selected
file server. The name of your selected file server is shown
on the LAN HIJACK screen. And you may hijack any station
connected to this server.

LAN HIJACK will attempt to connect to your default server.
If you wish to override this use the /S switch. For example,
to select a file server called ACCOUNTING :

LHJ /SACCOUNTING
LHR /SACCOUNTING

Display Compatibility

When LAN HIJACK is used between two computers with different
display adapters, LAN HIJACK makes a best attempt to
translate the display. There are some combinations of
display adapters and modes that are not translatable. In
these cases LAN HIJACK will display the message "Display mode
Not Supported." You still have control of the station's
keyboard but can not see the screen.

LHR for Hijackees
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Once LHR has been loaded, a station may be "hijacked". Users
at remote stations have little interaction with LAN HIJACK,
other than calling for help and disabling/enabling hijacking
of their station.

Calling for Help

If you have installed the HELP HOT KEY, users may use this
key to call for assistance from LHJ stations. When any user
presses the HELP HOT KEY each station with LHJ loaded ( on
the local network ) will beep twice. The LHJ user can
activate LAN HIJACK and then press the F2 key to connect to
the calling station.

Privacy

If you installed the Disable/Enable HIJACK HOT KEY, then
users at each station can disable or enable hijacking of
their station. This HOT KEY is a toggle switch. Pressing
this hot key the first time will disable hijacking of their
station. The next press of this hot key will enable
hijacking of their station.

Hijack Alert

If the hijack alert has been installed, a remote station will
beep every few seconds while being hijacked.

Removing LHR from Memory

You may remove the LHR memory resident program with the -r
commandline option. For example, at the commandline enter:
LHR -r
