QUICKSTART FOR TRUMPET WINSOCK 2.0B

Setting up the files
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
1.  Create a directory for Trumpet

	mkdir c:\trumpet

2.  Copy the file twsk20b.zip to c:\trumpet. Change directories and unzip
    the file.

	copy twsk20b.zip c:\trumpet
	cd c:\trumpet
	pkunzip twsk20b.zip

3.  Use the DOS edit command or Window's Notepad to modify your autoexec.bat
    file.

	edit c:\autoexec.bat

    Add this to the end of the PATH statement....

	;c:\trumpet

    Don't forget the leading semi-colon.

4.  Reboot the system and bring up windows.


Installing the package
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ 
5.  From Windows, select FILE, NEW. Select the PROGRAM ITEM radio button,
    then OK. The box labeled PROGRAM ITEM PROPERTIES will appear.  Fill out
    the DESCRIPTION and COMMAND LINE boxes, as follows....

	Description:	Trumpet
	Command  Line:	c:\trumpet\tcpman.exe

6.  Click the CHANGE ICON button. A Trumpet icon will appear. If it does
    not, re-check COMMAND LINE. Click on OK. Back at the PROGRAM ITEM
    PROPERTIES box, press OK.

7.  Click on the TRUMPET icon.


Configuration
~~~~~~~~~~~~~
8.  Find the Domain Name Servers (DNS) in your AzNET Configuration Guide.
    Enter both numbers, in the order given, into the NAME SERVER box,
    separating them by a space. Both numbers -will- fit as the box will
    scroll as you type.

9.  Enter these values under DOMAIN SUFFIX and MTU.....

	Domain Suffix:	AzNET
	MTU:		576

    The values for IP ADDRESS, NETMASK and DEFAULT GATEWAY are automatically
    assumed when once you login. You can leave those alone.

10. Check the box for either INTERNAL SLIP or INTERNAL PPP, whichever is
    appropriate to your account. (Probably PPP.)

11. Enter the comm port that your modem is attached to under SLIP PORT,
    and the suggested port speed for your modem (found in the user's manual)
    under BAUD RATE. Press OK. At the NET SETUP window, press OK.

12. Exit Trumpet, then bring it back up by pressing on the Trumpet icon. If
    you get the error, "Unable to Load TCP," check the Setup window (see
    steps 8 through 11) and verify the PATH statement in autoexec.bat file
    (see step #3).

13. Click on DIALLER, EDIT SCRIPTS and select the file LOGIN.CMD.  Edit
    $userprompt and $password (possibly lines 22 and 23) to look like
    this.....

	$userprompt = "login:"
	$password = "word:"

    Under Notepad, Click FILE, SAVE, then FILE, EXIT.


Logging on
~~~~~~~~~~
14. Click on DIALLER, LOGIN. The first time you do this, you will
    prompted for TELEPHONE NUMBER, LOGIN USERNAME, then LOGIN PASSWORD. All
    three items can be found in your AzNET Configuration Guide.

    Once the login is complete, press ESC. You are now online. Minimize the
    Trumpet window and open one of your Internet applications, such as
    Netscape. You will be able to find your IP address for the current
    session under FILE, SETUP, IP ADDRESS.

    The Trumpet package comes with a ping client, a utility helpful to
    diagnosing connection problems. It's in the Trumpet directory and has
    the name pingw.exe. An icon is not included but you may use any of the
    icons that comes with Windows.


Troubleshooting
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Check these items if you find you're having problems logging on.Also read
the file INSTALL.TXT in your Trumpet directory.

1.  Invalid Login error. AzNET usernames and passwords are case sensitive.
    Unless you specifically requested otherwise, be sure you entered your
    username and password all in lower case (small letters).

2.  The modem is not dialing out. The software is probably not finding the
    modem. First check the SLIP PORT setting in FILE SETUP. Be sure your
    modem is on, plugged in and that all cables are properly connected.

3.  TCPMAN.EXE is not loading. Check step 3 and steps 8 through 11, above.

4.  DNS errors. You are not accessing the Domain Name Servers. Check that
    the settings in FILE, SETUP, NAME SERVERS are accurate. If yes, then
    verify your modem connection by pinging (see setup 14, above) the
    address of your terminal server. Use this chart to determine your
    terminal server and enter it under the HOST window of PINGW.

    If the ping is unsuccessful, then your modem has dropped carrier.

5.  Modem keeps disconnecting. Assuming that all of the above is
    correct, then check your modem manual for the init string that sets your
    modem to its FACTORY DEFAULT SETTINGS. To customize your modem string, from
    Trumpet click on DIALLER, EDIT SCRIPTS and choose file LOGIN.CMD. Change
    the value given for $modemsetup. Do not forget the equal sign (=) and be
    sure there are double quotes (") on each side of the string. This is
    Trumpet's default modem string setting.....

	$modemsetup = "&c1&k3"
