We have added a new News Server to help with Server Downtime. The
Primary News Server name is: news.hotcom.net The Secondary News Server
The new server should give you many more Newsgroups to select from with a
larger storage base.
NEW WINDOWS Internet Explorer 4.0 is due out in
3.02 for Windows 95 and 3.x will be favorites for a long time. Iternet
Explorer 4.0 will be a BIG change and may not be desirable for everyone at
Complete program in one download.

v3.02a for Windows 95
Explorer v3.01a for Windows 3.x
NEW DNS SERVER:
Primary DNS to: 220.127.116.11 and the secondary DNS to: 18.104.22.168
This will solve the problems with DNS server availability. If you need help in changing your DNS (Domain Name Server) addresses, please call 895-7737 for on-line assistance.
The Windows Internet Explorer downloaded from our FTP files area, after 11/27/96, are current with the correct DNS. Trumpet users will only need the primary DNS.
The New Windows Internet Explorer is available in our FTP files area. It includes the latest version updates and is configured for top performance with the Heart Of Tennessee Internet connection.
Our new server requires changes to logins. The old server asked for "login:" then the username was sent, then it asked for "word:" and the password was sent. Login was complete and you waited for the prompt "hot:~$" or any part of this and sent the "p
pp" command to start your PPP connection. PPP is now automatic. A script file should wait for "login:", then sent your username, wait for "word:", then send your password (All without the quotes). A PAP login requires no script.
If you are using Chameleon Sampler, then you need to edit your script file "C:\NETMANAG\SLIP.INI" Script = login: $u$r word: $p$r and remove the COMMAND ppp in the Setup Login.
If you are using Trumpet, version 2.0, sent to you as HOT Install; then you will need to edit your login script; "login.cmd". You should be able to locate it as C:\NETSCAPE\LOGIN.CMD. Edit this file with notepad and place a "#" (Pound Sign) to co
mment out two lines or remove them. The lines to edit are about 25 lines from the bottom of the script. Remove or comment out the lines "output $pppcmd\13" and "input 30 $prompt".
If you are running Trumpet version 2.1, then you will need to comment out or remove the lines; "output $pppcmd\13" and "input %prompttimeout $prompt". This should solve your login problems with Trumpet and Netscape.
Mac Users: Change Connect Script to Wait "login", Out "username" CR, Wait "word:", Out "password" CR. PAP may also be selected.
Netscape Personal Edition: Edit your Custom .SR script to waitfor "login:", send username, waitfor "word:" send "password"
Windows 95 users only need to remove their script files by deleting
the filename and path from their Dial Up Scripting tool. Manual login users should turn off Terminal Window after dialing. The Dial Up icon for Heart Of Tennessee will pass the username and password from CONNECT screen. This allows Windows 95 to use the P
AP control for auto logins. DNS errors may be caused by the TCP/IP protocol loaded more than once, not at all or the Registry may need to be reset. Select Tips & Tricks to reset your REGISTRY.
If you need additional help, please call 895-7737.
Thank you for your patience. We believe these changes will make your Internet connections faster and more reliable.
The NEW PowerRack is the first Internet remote access communications
server with serial port bit rates to 921.6Kbps. Our New Hayes Optima 288R
modems support port speeds to 230,000 baud.
Our New Linux Server is online now and offers our user's cgi programming
within their home page and directory.
We are adding a new Windows NT Server to our system which will allow
Windows 95 users to mount gigs of files and drives to their own system.
With the addition of WINS (Windows Information Name Server), users can
extend their network across the Internet mounting drives and printing at
Unable to negotiate a compatible set of protocols!
We are getting good connections with most generic brand Modems.
However from time to time certain modems will connect to modems of their own
brand or connect at higher speeds to certain brand modems. US Robotics Modems
(28.8) have been the worst to make reliable connections here. I've seen this
error message usually only with US Robotics modem. Putting in the string
ATS54.5=1 works on Sportsters 28.8. and sometimes it doesn't work.
Here is a current list of Phone numbers and the brand modems on line.

TIPS & TRICKS with Bugs!
If you are running Windows 95 Dial Up Networking and a copy of our old script that looks like: delay 2, waitfor "$", you need to remove the delay 2. This was an error on our part. It would create problems logging on that looked like disconnects. Sorry
! We would like to recommend using PAP (Password Authenticated Protocol). Just remove the Script and Dialup Scripting tools.
Trumpet Dialer's settings will not allow you to connect to all sites, then try: FILE, SETUP then set: mtu=1500, rwin=2048, mms=512
Speed up your WEB PAGES!! Netscape will check it's HD cache for the web
page before downloading. If there has been a change or it is a new page then
Netscape will download the new page. Many times this is not the case, because
of advertising on the pages always changing. Downloading WEB Pages and their
graphics take a lot of time. TRY selecting Netscape's OPTIONS, NETWORK
PREFERENCES and set Verify Documents to NEVER.. If you want to update the

NEW WEB PAGE
Map files for HTML. A new HOT WEB Page is here. If you are running the
latest version of Netscape (2.0 or >) or Windows Internet Explorer, then
Mapped graphics (Client Side) are very easy and fast. Mapped graphics are
pictures with mouse regions, which when clicked on will jump to a linked file
or information. If you are not running v1.0 of Netscape or some other browser,
these graphics are mapped through the server. If you are not using Netscape
version 2.0, then you may wish to download a new copy from our FTP area.
