OVERVIEW

In many organizations, network users leaving workstations
unattended poses serious security concerns. If a user walks
away from their PC, leaving it logged into the network,
others with physical access to the workstation can access
files and data with the other user's security.

Unlike other solutions that will reboot a workstation after
a period of "inactivity", potentially leading to data loss,
LockIT! will lock your PC, requiring that a password be
entered to regain access to the workstation. LockIT! does
this after a certain period of keyboard inactivity elapses,
or on-demand by pressing a configurable "hot-key".

Also important is that while LockIT! has locked out keyboard
access to the workstation, unattended processes can continue
to run uninterrupted!

If security is an issue in your network environment, you'll
find LockIT! indispensable.


INSTALLING LOCKIT!


To install the 30-day trial version of LockIT!, run the LI30DAY
program to serialize LockIT! to your file server. (For the
purchased version, the LIINSTAL program is run instead.)

DOS VERSION

For DOS Workstations, to install LockIT! into memory, simply
issue the command LOCKIT, which will load the LOCKIT.COM and
LOCKIT.OVR files into memory, requiring less than 2-1/2KB of
resident memory.

You may wish to consult the section below titled "COMMAND LINE
PARAMETERS" for information on LockIT! options.

For best results, LockIT! should be loaded after the NetWare
shell (NETx), and before any other pop-up programs.

When LockIT! is activated, either by the hot-key, or a key pressed
after a period of inactivity, LockIT! will pop-up over your
current application, and prompt you for your NetWare password to
continue. You can press the Escape key to remove this display
from the screen and continue execution of the interrupted program.
The next time a key is pressed, you will again be prompted for
a password.

The default "Inactive Delay" specifies that LockIT! will activate
if no keys are pressed within 5 minutes. This can be changed
using the command-line parameters described below.


WINDOWS VERSION

For Windows Workstations, to install LockIT! into memory,
follow the following steps:

In the [386Enh] section of your Windows SYSTEM.INI file,
include a "device=d:\path\WLOCKIT.386" statement informing
Windows where it can load the LockIT! virtual device driver
for 386 enhanced mode from.

WLOCKIT.386 is required to provide support for LockIT! in
DOS boxes, and to prevent the use of Ctrl-Alt-Del to kill
the current task and get around LockIT!'s password prompt.

Copy WLOCKIT.EXE and WLOCKIT.DLL to another location from
which they can be loaded. WLOCKIT.EXE can be loaded via the
"load=" statement in your WIN.INI, or the Windows 3.1 startup
group.

To provide support for encrypted passwords, the Novell NWCONN.DLL
is used. This DLL is included with LockIT! for your convenience,
and should not be used if you already have a later version of this
file on your system. The complete set of NetWare DLLs for Windows
can be found in the WINUP?.ZIP (currently WINUP7.ZIP) file in
the NOVFILES file area on CompuServe.

When LockIT! is activated, either by the hot-key, or a key pressed
after a period of inactivity, LockIT! will pop-up over your
current application, and prompt you for your NetWare password to
continue. You can select Cancel to remove this display
from the screen and continue execution of the interrupted program.
The next time a key is pressed, you will again be prompted for
a password.

The default "Inactive Delay" specifies that LockIT! will activate
if no keys are pressed within 5 minutes. This can be changed
via the "Setup" option on the LockIT! icon's menu.

A [LockIT!] section will be created in your WIN.INI with the
following parameters:

Inactive=xx, where xx specifies the number of minutes to wait
where if no keyboard activity occurs within this amount of time
the system will be considered inactive.

Wait=xx, where xx specifies the amount of time that the LockIT!
password prompt will display, before the background process
is resumed.

HotKey=xx specifies the Windows virtual key code that combines
with Alt (plus Ctrl or Shift) to form the LockIT! hot-key.
This is best set via the LockIT! Setup menu.

HotKeyCtrlOrShift=xxxx specifies whether Ctrl or Shift will be
combined to form the LockIT! hot-key. The LockIT! hot-key will
consist of Alt plus the specified HotKey, and either Ctrl or
Shift if specified here.

One limitation of the current version of LockIT! is that it
cannot correctly detect system inactivity if you are running
any applications with PIF files set for exclusive mode.

For best results, it is suggested that you also configure a
screen saver in the Windows Control Panel for use with LockIT!
LockIT! will activate the screen saver after unsuccesful
login attempts to help keep keystrokes from getting through
to the underlying application.


COMMAND-LINE PARAMETERS (DOS)

LockIT! Supports the following command-line parameters:

/U unloads LockIT! from memory, only if LockIT! was the last program
loaded into memory.
/D tells LockIT! to use disk overlays in favor of expanded or extended
memory.
/N installs LockIT! entirely in conventional memory, disabling any
memory swapping.
/ND tells LockIT! not to use disk overlays.
/NE tells LockIT! not to use expanded memory.
/NX tells LockIT! not to use extended memory.
/NU tells LockIT! not to use upper (high DOS) memory. (640KB - 1MB)

/I=99 where 99 is a value that sets the inactive delay.
If no keys are pressed within this many minutes, LockIT! considers
the PC to be inactive. (default=5 minutes)
If CastAway considers the PC inactive, it will not pop-up
with any new message displays until a key is pressed
/W=99 where 99 is a value greater than 10 sets the wait delay.
This delay specifies how long the login prompt will remain on
screen before LockIT! resumes execution of the currently working
process. (default=30 seconds)
/B enables screen blanking on EGA and VGA systems
/S enables the "snake" screen saver
/NB disables screen blaking (default)
/OFF temporarily disables LockIT!
/ON re-enables LockIT!


CHANGING THE DEFAULT HOT-KEY (DOS)

You can also change LockIT!'s default hot-key of --
the command line with the following command line parameters:

# Tells LockIT! to use alone in the hot-key.

@ Tells LockIT! to use alone in the hot-key.

& Tells LockIT! to use - in the hot-key.

! Tells LockIT! to use - in the hot-key.

A-Z Any alphabetic character from A to Z can be specified
to work in conjunction with or in the hot-
key.

Fxx Any function key (F1-F12) can be specified to work in
conjunction with or in the hot-key.

Examples:

LOCKIT alone defaults to the -- hot-key, or if
LockIT! has already been loaded, the hot-key is not changed.

LOCKIT X tells LockIT! to use -- as its hot-key.

LOCKIT #Z tells LockIT! to use - as its hot-key.

LOCKIT F12 tells LockIT! to use - as its hot-key.

LOCKIT &F5 tells LockIT! to use -- as its hot-key.

LOCKIT !Z tells LockIT! to use -- as its
hot-key.




COMPATIBILITY CONSIDERATIONS

For best results, LockIT! should be loaded after the NetWare
shell (NETx), and before any other pop-up programs.

LockIT! may experience problems with some revisions of some
manufacturer's VGA adapters. If your screen becomes corrupted
when LockIT! pops up, or after exiting LockIT!, include the
following statement in your AUTOEXEC.BAT file:

SET VGASAVE=OFF


MISCELLANEOUS INFO

The Supervisor password can be used to unlock a locked workstation,
by entering SUPERVISOR/PASSWORD at the password prompt.

NETWORK UTILITIES
-----------------

* I-Queue! - Simplifies network printing and print queue management
in the Novell NetWare environment. From within a small memory
resident pop-up (0 to 2-1/2KB), I-Queue! allows users to easily
change NetWare print queues and modify "capture" parameters.
I-Queue! is compatible with Novell's PRINTCON/PRINTDEF and adds
global PRINTCON support for Novell's own utilities.
Queue management capabilities include: delete/reorder print jobs,
move/copy jobs between queues, and hold/delayed printing.
NOW INCLUDES A WINDOWS VERSION!

* I-Queue! Server - Turn printers attached to any network workstation
into shared network printers. Two to four times faster than RPRINTER,
compatible with workstations running Windows, and compatible with
printer ports that do not provide "hardware interrupt support".

* LockIT! - Intelligent Security for DOS & Windows workstations
on Novell NetWare networks. LockIT! addresses the problem of
users leaving workstations unattended, and the security issues
that this presents. Unlike other solutions that will reboot or
logout a workstation after a period of "inactivity", potentially
leading to data loss, LockIT! locks out keyboard input until you
enter your NetWare password...even allowing unattended processes
to continue executing.

* CastAway! - A better NetWare broadcast message trap. Get NetWare
message notification (e.g., SEND) without your PC locking up until
you press CTRL-ENTER! Get notified of new messages while in graphics
based applications! All in 0 to 1-1/2KB of conventional memory!

* PopIT! - Gain pop-up access to almost ANY program with less than
2-1/2 KB overhead. Network administrators -- access SYSCON,
RCONSOLE, FCONSOLE and all of your favorite network utilities
without leaving your current application.

* OnCall! - A memory resident "Chat" utility for Novell NetWare,
that runs in between 0 and 2-1/2 KB of workstation memory.
Simple, straightforward, and easy to use. NOW INCLUDES A
WINDOWS VERSION!

EXPRESSIT! ELECTRONIC MAIL
--------------------------

* ExpressIT! Electronic Mail - The ExpressIT! Electronic Mail product
family includes the following products:

* ExpressIT! - The network version of ExpressIT!, including
the MHS-compatible DOS version, which runs in less than 2KB of
resident memory.

* ExpressIT! Remote - A remote version of ExpressIT! (DOS) customized
for use on stand-alone/remote PCs. Includes Personal MHS and
allows users to send and receive mail with any MHS based
electronic mail system. Includes the ability to run the MHS
Connectivity Manager from within the 2KB TSR without exiting
your current application.

* ExpressIT! Windows Client - An upgrade for the network version
of ExpressIT! offering native support for the Microsoft Windows
environment, and a wealth of additional features.

* ExpressIT! Remote Windows - A remote version of the Windows
version of ExpressIT! customized for use on stand-alone/remote
PCs. Includes Personal MHS and allows users to send and receive
mail with any MHS based electronic mail system.

A special Windows based MHS configuration utility eliminates the
need to use the MHS Directory Manager.

All versions of ExpressIT! include ExpressIT! Directory Assistance,
facilitating automatic exchange of user directories between ExpressIT!
hosts.

MHS GATEWAYS AND UTILITIES
--------------------------

* MHS Scheduler - An MHS mail agent that provides greater flexibility
in configuring when MHS will connect to a host. On a host-by-host
basis, the MHS administrator can configure different frequencies of
forced connections based on different times of the day, with
separate weekday, weekend, and holiday scheduling possible.
MHS gateways and internetwork connections can also be scheduled.
The companion RunIT! utility simplifies the creation of batch file
gateways...now you can run your tape backup system on your MHS
server.

* MHS Librarian! - An MHS Gateway that allows users to request
information to be forwarded to them via MHS. Requests are
made by placing a keyword in the "SUBJECT" field of the message
that you address to the library. A list of files may be
requested by sending a message with the keyword of INDEX. The
system Admin can also configure MHS Librarian so that selected
users can request files or directories other than those that
appear in the index. Security is provided by a password program
that generates unique daily passwords, a fixed password, or you
can create your own password utility.

MHS Librarian! also supports "discussion lists", similar to
the "list server" concept on the internet.

* PageIT! - An MHS gateway connecting MHS-based electronic mail
systems to full text alphanumeric pagers. Once configured,
sending messages to an alphanumeric pager is as simple as
sending a message from your favorite MHS application.

* ForwardIT! - An MHS mail agent for automatically forwarding
MHS based electronic mail messages. ForwardIT! can forward
(or copy) messages addressed to an MHS address to an alternate
address.

ForwardIT! is most useful in the MHS remote e-mail environment.
By remote, we refer to field workers or business travelers who
operate ExpressIT! Remote, or other MHS compatible remote
software, on a PC or laptop to access their electronic mail
from a distant location. Examples could include a salesperson
between sales calls, a business traveler in a hotel room,
or work-at-home scenarios.

Without ForwardIT!, when mail is sent to a recipient's office
address, MHS does not allow for a remote user to dial into the
network and retrieve mail waiting for their office address. Mail
addressed to this office address can only be picked up at the
office.

In order to send a message to the user's MHS remote, the sender
must assume responsibility for sending a copy of the message to
the remote MHS address.

With ForwardIT!, the user leaves a forwarding address at the
office, and while they're out, all messages will be forwarded,
or copied, to their forwarding address, giving users transparent
access to their electronic mail while away from the office.

This forwarding address can be any valid MHS address, including
addresses via MHS gateways.

* MhsQ! - An MHS gateway interface to NetWare print queues.
Messages can be sent via MHS to a NetWare print queue.
This capability can be useful for MHS remote sites and/or
MHS enabled applications for generating printed output
and/or reports.

MhsQ! can also redirect print queues on one file server
to a remote print queue on another file server via MHS.

* ExpressIT! MHS Directory Assistant - A directory services
gateway that automatically creates and updates user routes
in a multi-host workgroup environment. Add a user at one
host within the workgroup, and the user route will automatically
be created at all other hosts within the workgroup. Add a
new host to your workgroup, and the host and user lists will
automatically be added to other hosts within the workgroup.
(Directory Assistant is bundled with ExpressIT! but is also
available separately.)

* MHSNotify! - A TSR which runs on the MHS mail server only, and
automatically notifies recipients of new electronic mail
received from remote MHS sites, or across internetwork
connections. An excellent alternative to MHSALERT for
DaVinci e-mail users! (MHSNotify! is bundled with ExpressIT!)
