OK for all of you that do not have ftp access then here are some
instructions to get files from Simtel20. Explore.

%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%  CLIP BUT NOT REALLY RECOMMENDED %%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%
If you do not have FTP access to SIMTEL20, files may be ordered by
e-mail from LISTSERV at VM1.NODAK.EDU or LISTSERV at VM.ECS.RPI.EDU.

           If you are on BITNET: LISTSERV at NDSUVM1
                                 LISTSERV at RPIECS

   If your mailer knows domains: listserv at vm1.nodak.edu
				 listserv at vm.ecs.rpi.edu

If your mailer wants bang paths: uunet!vm1.nodak.edu!listserv
				 uunet!vm.ecs.rpi.edu!listserv

If you use bang paths, substitute your nearest neighbor which is also
on the Internet for uunet in the examples above.  Some examples are:
ames, decvax, decwrl, harvard, hplabs, nosc, rutgers, sharkey, sun,
ucbvax, ucsd, udel, uw-beaver, wuarchive.

Send this command to the server to get its help file:

GET PDGET HELP

Sample command (which gets our catalog of MS-DOS files):

/PDGET MAIL PD:<MSDOS.FILEDOCS>SIMLIST.ARC UUENCODE

These commands should be sent as the body of a regular email message.
Do not include a signature because it confuses the server.  If you
have xxdecode, you may wish to specify XXENCODE instead of UUENCODE to
avoid character translation problems.

Comments, questions, and suggestions should be directed to the LISTSERV
manager at one of these addresses, depending on which server you normally
use:

                    Internet                  BITNET

  "John Fisher" <FISHER at VM.ECS.RPI.EDU>   <FISHER at RPIECS>
  "Marty Hoag"  <INFO at VM1.NODAK.EDU>      <INFO at NDSUVM1>

Please do NOT send your comment or question about the servers to SIMTEL20.
However, if you wish to report a program bug or to request information
on how to upload files to SIMTEL20, you may send e-mail to me at one
of the addresses below.
