To upgrade from versions 1.85 thru' 1.90:
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
1) Make copies of these files from your old version in a holding
directory structure separate, distinct and apart from the
directory you will install the program in:

term.cfg
smartpad.txt
term.log
term.tet
\HOST\users.dat
users.sec
\MAIL\areas.cfg
\MAILER\mailer.log
mailer.cfg
mailer.evt
request.lst
\PHONES\*.fon
*.kbd
*.xlt
*.cst where * is replaced with the name of any of the
files with these extensions that you have changed
\QWK\qwk.cfg
qwk.tag
qwk.nam
\SAM'ED\areas.cfg
origins.txt
samed.cfg
samed.lst
\SCRIPT\*.rsl where * is replaced with the name of any of the
example script files we supplied that you have
customised.

2) Install the latest version in your old directory and answer A for
Always to the question "Overwrite? (Yes/No/Always/Quit) [N]"

3) Copy your old files that you preserved in step (1) above back into
the directory structure either over-writing the newly installed
files or renaming as you think appropriate.

To upgrade from versions older than 1.85
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Start over!

You MUST start afresh with a new directory structure separate, distinct
and apart from the directory structure you have your obsolete versions
of Terminate already installed in.

Sorry, but we have greatly improved the program adding, amongst
other features, multi task-windows, greatly improved IEMSI capable
MiniHost with QWK Mail Door, QWK'em Offline Mail Reader, Fax Manager,
RIPscrip 1.54 graphics in both Terminal and QWK'em, REXX-like Script
Language for DOS full scripting (RSL), Prestel/Viewdata, etc, etc so
none of your old phonebook structures, configuration files, etc, etc,
remain compatible.

(This is just one of the reasons we changed the default installation
directory and executable to "TERM")



Getting started quickly


At the Operating System prompt, enter: INSTALL

(Terminate is Warp aware and should automatically detect the OS/2
environment and act accordingly))

{Please note that we can NOT help you with the English Language Test
you must pass before installation continues. We want to be sure that
people understand enough English to give their informed consent to our
licencing terms...}
*

After a successful installation, enter: T.BAT
and the first time the program runs it will attempt an intelligent
configuration.

For people who don't know much about serial communication and modems:
- don't worry about all the options!

IMPORTANT: If you don't understand a toggle or option do not change it
- just leave it as it is. The options have already been set
to give the best performance for the majority.

*

All options have been set as sensible defaults for normal use, and
there is no immediate need to change much - although you may need to
set up the following things if the intelligent configuration failed
or you aborted it:

Port Parameters:-
To change these, press [Alt] and [P] from the Terminal window.
After you have made your changes, hit "OK" for a temporary change for
that session only, or "Update" to permanently write the changes in
your configuration.

If you have a faster modem than 2400 bps, you should set your bps rate
to 19200 or 38400 or even faster (see below).

Fast modems can use data compression and if you only use 9600, you
will not be making the best of the hardware you possess for fast
transfers since your low port speed will act as a bottleneck.

Normally, for most BBS use, you use 8 databits, no parity, 1 stopbit.

If you do have a slow modem and are using 2400, you should disable
Hardware RTS/CTS flowcontrol in the "Change Configuration,
Communication Setup" menu.

9600bps and faster modems use Hardware RTS/CTS flowcontrol, which is a
safer way of sending data when using a comport at 19200 or above.
(Don't ever run 57600 bps or faster on external modems, unless you are
sure that your cable is protected from noise - try 38400 first.)

Remember you must also set RTS/CTS flowcontrol in your modem - look in
the modem manual. RTS/CTS flowcontrol requires an internal modem OR an
external modem AND a proper modem cable which has the RTS and CTS
(Request to send/Clear to send) pins connected.

"Modem and dialling" configuration menu:-
If you did not allow the program to install a modem from the pick
list at first installation, you might choose "Install modem" from
this menu now.

if your modem does not feature in the pick list ofmodems, you must set
the following things manually - or at least check if they work (Look
in your modem manual to check for further details. Remember factory
defaults on your modem may mean you won't have to change anything...):

Carrier Detect (CD) follows line (usually &C1)

Type AT&C1 and press enter

When DTR is low, line must be dropped, (Usually &D2 or &D3)

Type AT&D2 and press enter

Not all modems like this, if you can't hangup your modem, move to the
"Modem & dialling" menu and Enter a 0 at the hang-up options which
will allow Terminate to send a hangup string to your modem instead.

Type ATS0=0
Then your modem will not pick up the phone - leaving Terminate to make
the decision.

If you can save your setup in your modem, type AT&W, otherwise you
must use the initstring which combines these variouus commands:
AT&C1&D2S0=0^M

If your modem string is not sent because the carrier is high when you
start up Terminate, you should enable the switch "Force init string"
in the "Modem and dialling" menu..

If your modem is a normal Hayes compatible you don't need to set up
anything else, everything has been set up already.

*

Now you should be ready to press [Alt][D] for the phonebook and call
some of the great BBS's listed there - or make some entries of your
own!

Have fun!
