PASSWORD - menu or DOS prompt


PASSWORD may be called from the DOS prompt, Menu System or a

batch file, such as AUTOEXEC.BAT. You may use a COMMON password
or SPECIFIC passwords.

Use this feature to:

1 - Limit access to certain programs or menu items.

2 - Lock your workstation when you leave it.


Password length: 30 characters, including control characters.

If you fail to enter the correct password after three attempts,
then:

1 - An alarm will sound.
2 - The message "Access DENIED" will display.
3 - The PC keyboard will be LOCKED and the system must be
powered down and rebooted.


PAGE 1 OF 2 Press any key to continue.

COMMON password. Your password is saved. Each time you give the
password, you have the option of changing or removing password
protection.

Example: TITLE >Lotus 123
C>PASSWORD
C>CD \LOTUS
C>123

SPECIFIC PASSWORD. Give a password to be used with the PASSWORD
command.

EXAMPLE: TITLE >Password / Lock station for coffee break.
C>PASSWORD IBM

You may also use the TILDE ~ character as a simple code routine,
which will shift each letter by one. The password is still IBM

EXAMPLE: TITLE >Password / Lock station for coffee break.
C>PASSWORD ~JCN

REBOOT - from a menu



Commands to REBOOT your system, from a Menu or the DOS prompt.

message telling the user to power down. Does not reboot.

identical to a power-on start or pressing CTRL-ALT-DEL.


C>EASYMENU AUTOEXEC will reboot your system and use the file
AUTOEXEC.NEW in place of the AUTOEXEC.BAT file.


C>EASYMENU CONFIG will reboot your system and use the file
CONFIG.NEW in place of the CONFIG.SYS file.


C>EASYMENU AUTOEXEC CONFIG will do both of the above.



Edit AUTOEXEC.NEW and CONFIG.NEW from the INFO menu.

CONFIG.SYS files will be used.

  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/
