You may want to remove Docs/Zen and Docs/Lots_of_ftp_sites from the archive
to make it smaller for transfer from your account to your Amiga.
(This document is an edited version of readmeNOW!.txt from AmigaNOS/Docs.)
This file is the second in a series of 3 designed to help you get SLIP
running using AmigaNOS. The first one in the series is AmigaNOS-ask, and the
next one in the series is AmigaNOS-help2. All three are available for
anonymous FTP from
Here is a brief guide to getting AmigaNOS set up on your machine.
Consult the other files to fully customize your setup.
(1) You must edit the following files putting in your own IP address
and site name were indicated;
Domain.txt in directory amiganos/slip
nos-startup in directory amiganos/slip
Also in Nos-startup you will need to tell it what speed your modem
will be logging on to the host machine:
attach asy serial.device 0 slip nos 4096 1006 38400c <-- The c is for
Use what you do in your
(3) Edit the ftpusers file in directory amiganos/slip
(This is for when you logon to your NOS BBS.)
The following is your choice;
yourname : (Same as cix would be a good choice)
Password : (Anything not obvious)
(If you don't want any tom, dick or fis logging on get rid of the line
that says anonymous *).
(5) In your startup-sequence put the following;
assign slip: <device>:amiganos/slip
assign tcpip: <device>:amiganos/slip
assign nntp: <device>:amiganos/slip/spool/articles
(6) Edit the Nos-dial file and put in your own site name and password.
(7) Copy files in amiganos/c to your c: directory.
(8) To start simply click the icon (NOS) - it will then load and dial
demon to connect.
(Make sure the assign's are running i.e. you've done a reset)

Q: How do I log on to my own node?
A: Type "telnet yoursite" or "bbs" at the nos prompt.
Q: What are all these commands for?

thank you. i called and got the info you suggested before (ip address for
news server, etc)... i will ftp these files and take another stab at it. i
am sure i'll be back as there are some hurdles to get by....
one of them is... i dial in to a modem pool and cannot be guaranteed that i
will get the same ip each time. i guess this will make it a bit tougher,

If you use AmigaNOS 2.9k with PPP instead of SLIP then your
AmigaNOS IP address will be configured automatically by the
terminal server (if configured properly).

do you happen to know where i might find 1.9k? i have 1.9i & 1.9j. also,
when you say use PP instead of SLIP you mean that that i what i choose to
use on my (amiga) side, right? on the server i still open a SLIP
connection, not a PPP connections, right?
