Big Fun in the Internet with Uncle Bert
=======================================
Yer luvin' Uncle Bert stumbles through the gateway, scurries across
the 'Internet land, eyes agog, then has Big Fun in the nether regions.

[These are all ftp, telnet and email sites all over the world that
have all kinds of neat resources available, and can mostly be
accessed from any internet node.]

Notes
=====
=== general format of entries
111.222.333.444 machine.site.domain {port} login: login_name (telnet)
111.222.333.444 machine.site.domain directory/files_of_interest (ftp)
mail [email protected] message: commands (mail)
111.222.333.444 [email protected] message: commands (mail)
111.222.333.444 finger [email protected] (finger)
(area code) phone number settings BBS_name (dial-up BBS)

111.222.333.444 is the IP number (Internet Protocol)
machine.site.domain is the DNS name corresponding to the IP number
{port} is a port number, where required, for telnet access (see below)

=== telnet
telnet allows you to log in to a remote machine as if you are connected to a
directly attached terminal. Allows realtime interactive sessions, browsing
through information, not usually file transfers unless kermit or some such is
enabled.

From your terminal prompt type:

telnet machine.site.domain {port}

At the login prompt put login_name (it is not given if none is required):

login: login_name

Some sites must be logged in from an actual Internet node rather than
something connected to one (like a PC connected with a SLIP link to a node).

telneting a port: (site name instead of IP# can be used)
telnet 128.235.1.10 2000
telnet 128.235.1.10..2000
telnet 128.235.1.10::2000
telnet 128.235.1.10/port=2000

=== ftp
ftp allows you to logon to a remote site and list and get (and put) files.

ftp machine.site.domain
login: anonymous (anonymous is usual public access name)
password: your_email_address (occasionally guest)(not required but preferred)
cd directory (usually pub/)
cd sub_directory (often self descriptive)
get README |more (more's README to your screen without actually getting file)
type binary (see below)
get file_of_interest (download file_of_interest)

To switch to binary mode for file transfers type at the ftp prompt:

bi (shortcut)
binary (often works)
type binary (usually works)
set file type binary (kermit format, sometimes works)
tenex (if remote host is vax)

Success is indicated by a message saying:

set to type I

or some such. During file transfer the mode (ascii, binary...) is usually
indicated. Some ftp sites perform automatic switching between modes.

=== remote ftp - Bitftp
Mail the following ftp script file to [email protected] (bitnet) or
[email protected] (Internet):

help (to get the bitftp help file)
ftp site.domain uuencode
user anonymous
(eg. binary, ls, get file_name)
quit

=== remote ftp - DECwrl
Mail the following ftp script file to [email protected]:

connect machine.site.domain (defaults to decwrl.dec.com)
get README.ftp (the help file @decwrl.dec.com)
(eg. chdir , binary, ls, get file_name)
quit

=== mail
mail [email protected] site means send a mail message to that site
with the message as indicated on the first line, put each option on a new line
(subject: don't care, unless indicated). They usually take only a few minutes
to respond, and if you err they'll send messages explaining the problem, so
you can `chat' to them.

mail machine.site.domain
Subject: don't care(usually not read, or read as if it's part of the message)
help (usual for getting general help for that site)
send file (get the file; generic files are help & index)
quit (sometimes used to end a mail transaction)

=== finger
finger [email protected] displays a file (hopefully of some
useful information) that person has made available.

=== Usenet
usenet:newsgroup indicates the newsgroup readable on usenet news.

Usenet is the global news service that runs on many internet and other sites.
Mail is posted by you and me to specific newsgroups, and is read everywhere in
the world where that newsgroup is fed. See news.announce.newusers for a list
of all the newsgroups.

On unix boxes newsreaders are invoked with a command like nn (No News),
rn (read news), trn (threaded read news), or other such incantations. On
other systems, who knows? Many folks can't access news directly, but can get
on mailing lists often provided for this contingency. Get the list of lists
to see the mailing groups, and be aware of bitftp (bitnet users) or decwrl
(others) if you can't ftp directly (see both above).

=== Glossary
.gif gif (graphic interchange format) are encoded pictures

.ps postscript file preformatted for postscript printers and viewable on all
platforms with various viewers.

.tar unix tape archive format. To tar files on a PC get pdtar.zip from wustl
(see under random files above). To tar a bunch of file into file.tar:

tar cvf file.tar file1 file2 file3 ...

to untar the files:

tar xvf file.tar (tvf instead of xvf to just see the contents)

.tar.Z
On unix, filenames may contain numerous extensions. uncompress
file.tar.Z to generate file.tar, then untar file.tar to get the
contents.

.Z unix compression. To compress on a PC get comp430d.zip from wustl. To
compress a file type:

compress file (generates file.Z)

To uncompress a file.Z type:

uncompress file.Z (regenerates file)

{options}: nixpub.{short|long} means nixpub.short or nixpub.long

This compendium has been growing over a few years of internet travelling, and
represents the minimum amount of information to the happy net wanderer. It
consists of sites of interest to me (which is why there is a section on
handheld computers), and hence includes sites of direct relevance to exploring
the net. I have tried all sites listed, but some not so recently.
I only discovered Scott Yanoff's internet services list a few weeks ago,
which has much overlap. I highly recommend getting it (see above under
Internet resource guides).

Another file I have been culturing for some years is Gateways, Keys to
the Matrix, (above) which is a good adjunct to this file. Also see John
Chew's internetworking guide (above).

Sites do change, and some I have trouble getting into are indicated
(nogo). Any corrections, additions, deletions and reorganizations please send
to me @:
