An Introductory Guide To TeleNet Commands

An Introductory Guide To TeleNet Commands

I don't know how many of you use TeleNet to call this system (or other systems) but I thought this might come in handy for those that do.

Some basic info about TeleNet commands. To enter a TeleNet you must be at the TeleNet prompt "@". You can get there two ways:

1) When you first dial TeleNet you will be at the prompt
2) When connected to a system via TeleNet you can return to TeleNet command mode by typing "<CR>@<CR>" (See note A.)

Once you get to the prompt here are some of the commands available to you and a brief description of what they do.

Command Function
C xxxxxxx<CR> Connects you to a specific host or terminal.
STAT<CR> Display network port address.
FULL<CR> Set full duplex
HALF<CR> Set half duplex
DTAPE<CR> Prepares the network for bulk file transfers.
CONT<CR> Return to transfer mode from command mode.

BYE<CR> or D<CR> Disconnects you from the currently connected host.

HANGUP<CR> Tells TeleNet to hang up the phone....
TERM xx<CR> Changes your terminal type. xx can be one of the
D1 = CRT's and Personal Computers

at another setting.
A9 = same as A5
<CR> = Unknown
MAIL or Requests connection to Telemail.

TEST CHAR<CR> Used to test the system if you are receiving garbled output. Use this and look for garbled characters or patern breaks. If you do try adjusting your parity or contact TeleNet.

TEST ECHO<CR> If you feel your input to the system is being garbled by your parity or contact TeleNet.
