How to retrieve files from the LISTSERV@KENTVM or via anonymous FTP

To retrieve files from the LISTSERV send the message

GET <filename> <filetype>

to the LISTSERV@KENTVM via interactive messaging or e-mail message
(leave the subject line *BLANK*)

To retrieve files via anonymous FTP from KSUVXA.KENT.EDU
you must have an e-mail account linked to the Internet and a system running
the TCP/IP.   Ask your computer services people about your local situation.
FTP KSUVXA.KENT.EDU  (at your dollar sign prompt (VAX) or ready screen
(IBM).  If you are on another kind of system consult with your computer
services people to find out the proper procedure for FTPing.

When prompted for 'USERID' type ANONYMOUS  your password will be your
actual userid on your local machine.   e.g. my address is my password when FTPing is LIBRK329

FTPing causes files to be directly sent to your filelist or directory so their
is no need to 'receive' them into your account space.
How to receive files sent to you by the LISTSERV into your e-mail reader:
If your e-mail address is on a VAX VMS machine, when you get a message
that a file has arrived at your e-mail address....type "RECE *".  This command
will put the file into your directory.  You can then type "TYPE file_name" to
read the file.  If your e-mail address is on an IBM VM CMS machine, either
use your mailer front end or type RLIST and RECEIVE the file into your FLIST.
Go into your FLIST to look at the file.

If your e-mail address is on a different kind of machine OR you are
using Profs or some other kind of similar mailing system....go ahead and try
the above commands.  If they do not work, CALL YOUR COMPUTER SERVICES
OFFICE.  The people there should be able to help you and/or hopefully give you a
manual for your mailing system commands.
