Subject: 	HYTELNET version 4.0 now available
 
This is to inform you that HYTELNET version 4.0, the utility which gives
an IBM-PC user instant-access to all Internet-accessible library
catalogs, Freenets, CWISs, Library BBSs, etc. is now available. You can
get it via anonymous ftp from:
 
vaxb.acs.unt.edu   (129.120.1.4)
 
in the "library" subdirectory. It is listed as HYTELN40.ZIP.
 
<Please do not attempt a download on Saturday, October 12, 1991>
 
Version 4.0 is a major upgrade. It has been completely re-designed to
run faster. The majority of files are now housed in their own
subdirectories. For example, all Canadian library sites are now filed in
the subdirectory \CN0, Australian libraries in \AT0, etc. The file
OTH046 contains instructions for accessing the UNIX version of HYTELNET,
which has been written by Earl Fogel at the University of Saskatchewan.
 
Note: the UNZIPPED files total over 500,000 bytes...but remember, you
can always edit out any information you do not need, in order to save
space.
 
Information from Roy Tennant follows, slightly edited, describing how to
obtain HYTELNET version 4.0 from Billy Barron's ftp site (thanks Roy):
 
TO RETRIEVE HYTELNET:
At your system prompt, enter:               ftp vaxb.acs.unt.edu
      or                                    ftp 129.120.1.4
When you receive the Name prompt, enter:    anonymous
When you receive the password prompt, enter your Internet address.
When you are at the ftp> prompt, enter:     binary
At the next ftp> prompt, enter:             cd library
Then enter:                                 get HYTELN40.ZIP
After the transfer has occurred, either
   proceed with the instructions below to
   retrieve the UNZIP utility (which you
   need unless you already have it) or enter:   quit
 
The Hytelnet program is archived using a ZIP utility.  To unarchive it,
you must be able to "unzip" the file.  If you have the file PKUNZIP.EXE,
it will unarchive the HYTELN40.ZIP file (see below for instructions). If
you do not have it, you may retrieve it with by following these
instructions:
 
TO RETRIEVE PKUNZIP:
Use the above instructions for connecting to vaxb.acs.unt.edu
At the ftp> prompt, enter:                   binary
Then enter:                                  cd micro/ibm/utility
Then enter:                                  get PKUNZIP.EXE
After the transfer has occurred, enter:      quit
 
TO DOWNLOAD IT TO YOUR PC:
 
Because of the plethora of PC communications programs, I will not
attempt to give step-by-step instructions here.  You should check the
instructions for your software for downloading a *binary* file from your
Internet account to your PC.
 
TO UNARCHIVE HYTELN40.ZIP:
 
Make a new directory on your hard disk (e.g., mkdir hytelnet)
Copy PKUNZIP.EXE and HYTELN40.ZIP into the new directory
Make sure you are in that directory, then enter: pkunzip HYTELN40
It will then unarchive HYTELN40.ZIP, which contains the following files:
 
                             HYTELNET.ZIP
                             READNOW.!!!
 
The file READNOW.!!! gives full instructions for un-archiving
HYTELNET.ZIP. Simply put, you **MUST** unZIP the file with the -d
parameter so that all the subdirectories will be recursed.
 
To use HYTELNET, you should refer to the instructions in the release
announcement by Peter Scott, or to the README file included with the
package.
 
PLEASE NOTE that I offer the above instructions as a service for those
who are unfamiliar with the steps required to download and use files
from network sources.  I cannot be responsible for any local variations
in these procedures which may exist.  Please contact your local computer
support staff if you have difficulty performing these tasks.
