Setting up NetTerm:
After you download the NetTerm installation file, click on it to install it on your PC, then run it and do the following.
Select File --> Phone directory.
Use the scroll bar on the right to
find an entry called "Telnet Default" and click on it once - this will be the template.
In the fields in the lower area, type the appropriate data as listed below, and click the Add button
at the bottom when done. The fields that are not listed are irrelevant.
Host Name - primus or aries
Host/IP - primus.bnserve.com or aries.bnserve.com for Windows NT®
Telnet Port - 23
Connection - TCPIP
Emulation - VT320
Keys - VT320
Then click on the connect button on the bottom of the screen.
It will ask for your logon name and password.
If you do not have a password, please contact us to get a password and a logon name.
You can then check your mail using pine
- simply type the word ``pine" (no capital letters.)
If you are not familiar with pine, type ``man pine" to get the instructions.
Notes on printing from NetTerm
1. To print the current screen use File --> Print Screen
2. To save your session as a file for later editing and printing, use either File --> Session Logging... or Edit --> Save Scroll
3. File --> Session Logging... saves the contents of your session in a file whose name you specify until you click on File --> Session Logging... again to turn it off.
--> Save Scroll Buffer As... saves the contents of your current scroll back buffer. You will need to keep the back scroll buffer large enough to capture your session. To increase the size of your scroll
back buffer use Options --> Setup--> Desktop and change the value of Scroll back Lines.
When you open the file in a word processor like MS Word®, select all of the text and use a fixed width
font like Courier so that the report layout remains intact. Also use a font size of 9 or 10.
