      (which is how to use (this section (this file (the internet))))

=== Key
111.222.333.444     machine.site.domain port#     login: login_name   (telnet)
111.222.333.444     machine.site.domain directory/files_of_interest      (ftp)
111.222.333.444     server@site(server@site.Bitnet)   message: commands (mail)
111.222.333.444     person@machine.site.domain    finger              (finger)
111.222.333.444     person@machine.site.domain    gopher              (gopher)
(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 (1-5 digits), which is required if shown, for telnet
access (see below).

The entries are compressed as much as possible.  In the following example you
can finger entity@machine.site.domain as well as ftp machine.site.domain to
access <files_of_interest>:

111.222.333.444 entity@machine.site.domain finger directory/files_of_interest

=== 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 (<port#> is required if given):

     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 into 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 (this normally works)
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 (or ftp IP# if ftp'ing the sitename isn't working)
login: anonymous                       (anonymous is usual public access name)
password: <your_email_address> (sometimes 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 Bitftp@PUCC (Bitnet)
or Bitftp@PUCC.Princeton.edu (Internet):

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

=== remote ftp - DECwrl
Mail the following ftp script file to ftpmail@decwrl.dec.com:

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

=== mail
mail server@machine.site.domain site means send a mail message to that site 
with the message 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 person@machine.site.domain displays a file (hopefully of some useful 
information) that <person> has made available.

=== gopher
gopher machine.site.domain to show a menu of resources available at that site.
Many gopher sites include access to other gopher sites all over the net.  If 
gopher is not available at your site get one, or you can telnet a gopher 
client (see above, and Yanoff's list for a full list).

=== 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 (and a dozen 10-page articles about usenet).

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 (pageview on sun, ghostscript on any 
     platform).

.tar unix tape archive format.  To tar files on a PC get pdtar.arc 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)

.*   wildcard, means .whatever

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

=== Feedback (what would make this file more useful to you?)
This compendium has been growing over a few years of internet travelling, and 
has been posted on the net every 6 months or so since Summer 1992.  It 
represents the minimum amount of information of 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.

These usage notes are little more than an introduction or refresher for the 
less frequent traveller.  Sites such as SURAnet have great help files, as do 
some of the books (see Internet Resource Guides above).

I also highly recommend getting Scott Yanoff's internet services list (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 their contents, services, and locations.  I welcome any 
additions, corrections, deletions, reorganizations, and suggestions @:
