Trumpet Setup Instructions



In your winsock applications, be sure to use the ip addresses or alias names in the Trumpet hosts file. (See settings below in trumpwsk.ini and hosts)

If you don't yet have Trumpet Winsock, login to your shell account with your communications program using vt100 emulation and zmodem file transfer. You can can use the procedure below.

[*Download the key applications yourself with lynx or ftp*]

I have setup a small html page for installing SLiRP, TIA, Trumpet Winsock 2.0B, WS_FTP, Netscape 1.1N and the latest versions of other winsock applications with lynx.

[*lynx is available on your UNIX shell account*]

(1) {netcom2.1} lynx

(2) Select Trumpet Winsock 2.0B 

(3) Select "D" for D)ownload.

(4) Then select,  "Save to disk"

(5) Q to quit lynx

(6) {netcom2.1} sz  [*to initiate a send zmodem file transfer*]

You can also download SLiRP, TIA, ws_ftp, Netscape 1.1N, etc. from the 
same page.

[*no lynx and using ftp*]

{netcom2.1} ftp
            ftp> username: anonymous
            ftp> password: yourname@your.domain [*email address*]
            ftp> binary
            ftp> cd /winsock-l/stacks/trumpwsk
            ftp> recv
            ftp> quit

Use sz to zmodem to your PC.  Repeat for WS_FTP, Netscape, etc.

ftp /pub/msdos
ftp /netscape1.1/windows n16e11n.exe


From the menu bar select Dialler->Setup.cmd. This will capture the information needed for your login CMD file. Here is a graphical Trumpet 2.0B setup example.
