DPF '96

Email and Web Access at DPF

Two rooms containing a combination of PCs and Macintoshes are available for use by DPF participants. You need to show your conference badge to gain admission to these rooms.

Netscape and a telnet client are available from all the machines.

Using Netscape and telnet from PCs

The ``Internet Applications'' folder is ordinarily open when you sit down at the PC, and it contains both Netscape and a telnet client.

To run the telnet client, double-click on the "Telnet" icon, then type in the internet address to which you wish to connect. When you're done, and have logged out of the remote machine, a box reading "Connection Closed" will appear, and clicking on "OK" will close the telnet application.

To run Netscape, double-click on Netscape Navigator. When done, pull down the "File" menu and choose "Exit".

Using Netscape and telnet from Macs

Double click on the "Click Twice" icon; this brings up a window with a number of buttons at the top. Click on the "Communications" button; this will display a folder containing Netscape and a telnet client.

To run the telnet client, click once on the "NCSA Telnet 2.7b1" icon. Then pull down the "File" menu, select "Open Connection", and type in the internet address to which you wish to connect. When you're done, and have logged out of the remote machine, pull down the "File" menu and select "Quit".

To run Netscape, double-click on Netscape Navigator. When done, pull down the "File" menu and choose "Exit".

Printing

Please do not print anything until you have obtained a print card. Print cards may be purchased from the conference secretaries or from the attendants in the computer rooms. The computer-room supervisors cannot accept cash for print cards; only checks, so it may be most convenient to buy print cards from the conference office. Printouts come out on the printer near the attendant's desk, and they will hand you your printout after checking off the proper number of pages from your print card.

If you need to print files transferred from an out-of-town computer, please download them to the "Lost & Found" folder on the Macs or the "SAVE" directory on the PCs, and delete them when you're finished with them.
