CONNECTING TO THE WOFFORD WITCH...
Your telnet session with the Wofford WITCH has been launched.
If you are having trouble with establishing your telnet session,
review the information on the Telnet Clients page. If you would
like to connect manually, you can use a telnet client of your
choice to connect to http://www.woffordwitch.com on port 232.
Once your telnet session is established, the system should respond
with a banner that reads "THE WOFFORD WITCH IS READY!!". This is
the message that the original Wofford Witch broadcast to all
terminals when it had completed its startup process after booting.
To log in (this example shows the guest account of 40,1), you should
and press the enter key. The system will then ask you for a password.
Type your password (the guest account's password is GUEST), and press
the enter key. You will then be prompted to enter a Usage Category.
The Usage Category was a Wofford customization that was used to track
system usage for statistical purposes. You can hit enter to get a list
of usage categories. Type in the number of your desired usage category
and press enter. You should then receive a READY prompt. The system
is now waiting for you to tell it what to do. You can do a directory
(of games, for example) by typing DIR GAME: and pressing enter. To
run a program (POKER, for example), type RUN GAME:POKER.
To log off the system, type BYEY or BYEF and press enter. If you forget
to log off, the detached program $WAITS will log off idle terminals after
15 minutes (or maybe 20 - I can't remember). $WAITS is a program that
was developed at Wofford by Dr. Dan Olds to log off terminals where
students had just walked away and not logged off.
If the system seems to be sending the ENTER key twice when you only
pressed it once, you need to read the information on the
Telnet Clients page to help you
configure your telnet client.
