Users of this service are strongly recommended to use, where possible, one of the following alternatives:
i.e. TELNET HOSTNAME.CERN.CH
e.g. CERNVM.CERN.CH or VXCERN.CERN.CH
Please see ``User Guide to Terminal Access from home'' available from UCO or XFIND ACB on the central computers.
The recommended numbers for access to IBM and VXCERN do not change.
CERNVM ( full screen mode) (0)2284681140522
VXCERN ( full screen mode) (0)2284681140550
However, access to other CERN hosts via service 10 (line mode) and 12 (full screen mode) i.e. (0)2284681140510/12 have moved to a DECserver.
Direct telephone access (via a terminal and modem)
Direct terminal access via certain restricted telephone numbers ( without callback) will move to a DECserver. At the same time the four lines with prefix 782 will be supressed.
In both cases the X29 number and phone number remain the same and the user is connected to a DECserver and should see the following message:
DECserver 200 Terminal Server V3.1 (BL37) - LAT V5.1
Type C VXCERN or C TAGIBM etc to connect.
Please type HELP if you need assistance
The HELP service is very complete. Currently no password is used and it is only necessary to type C Hostname (e.g. C TAGIBM for fullscreen access to IBM).
Use SHOW SERVICES to see hosts/services available. CERN hosts not listed may be reached indirectly using C TELNET.
