HI VSNL SHELL ACCOUNT USERS I HOPE THIS PAGE GETS QUICKLY LOADED
IF YOUR USING SHELLSOCK.
HERE ARE A FEW TIPS ,I HOPE U FIND THEM HELPFUL
1 I have heard something called SENSE/NET is come up something like shellsock
2 HEY guys has shellsock made life easier or u r too buged because its slow?
Why don't u use EUDORA LIGHT for writing mails offline and then sending them.
It works perfectly with my shell account .It can be used by Windows 3.1/3.11 users too.
I know u can use cut or copy and paste for emails when using pine while u r online
but u'd love eudora as everything is done in a jiffy
Now how do i get eudora? .If u have purchased the Chip magzines or PC QUEST
u will find EUDORA LIGHT on the CDs. Scripts for eudora are available at www.vsnl.net.in/mail
3 HyperTerminal has been my all time favourite terminal app.But if your too keen to see the pictures while
your downloading them u can get this great terminal program called ZOC ,configure it properly and view images while
downloading its a shareware available at www.emtec.com
4. Some lynx tips
give Lynx a new outlook by changing the options press "O" and "change to links are numbered"
by pressing "L" and the down arrow key.Browse really quick now just pressing the link numbers
5 Have u tried this! what? on pages containg images, sound ,links etc which u think you are unable to access
press shift+8 i.e"*" and then enjoy as all links on the page get highlighted
6 Do u now that a new software for vsnl shell account has been released
seems good but the max rate i have got with it is 9600 bps but i say its quite good .What's its name?
"FIRECOMME" and is available at members.xoom.com/firecomme/index.htm
7 Finally publish your own page for free by signing on with
here u have a homepage builder take all the advantage of it
doesn't matter if u got a shell account
I made this page using Netscape Composer which came along with Nescape Communicator
I don't know a bit about HTML but its great with Netscape Composer
I heard u can make it even with Word97
8 I have visited various sites and download shell tips pages and put them in a zip file
u can download these pages TIPS.ZIP
9 For quick downloading from shell prompt(unix prompt) use this great command
"sz -beru filename.aaa" where filename.aaa is the name of your file
