NOTE: These browsers require that you have SLIP, PPP
or other TCP/IP networking on your PC. SLIP or PPP can be accomplished
over phone lines. You can do this one of two ways: using a
proper SLIP account, which requires the active cooperation of your
network provider or educational institution, or using
The Internet Adapter or SLiRP, products
which simulate SLIP through your dialup Unix shell account.
only have non-Unix based dialup shell access, or have no PC
at home, your best option at this time is to run
Lynx on the VMS (or Unix, or...) system you call,
or telnet to a browser if you cannot do so.
- DosLynx is an excellent text-based browser for use on
DOS systems. You must have a level 1 packet driver, or
an emulation thereof, or you will only be able to browse
local files; essentially, if your PC has an Ethernet
connection, or you have SLIP, you should be able to use it.
DosLynx can view GIF images, but not when they are inline
images (as of this writing).
See the README.HTM file at the DosLynx site for details.
You can obtain DosLynx by anonymous FTP from ftp2.cc.ukans.edu in the
directory pub/WWW/DosLynx; the URL is
