Having entered a reference (your name, for example), you should then receive a guest_ftp> prompt. The following commands are available from this prompt:
dir list files in your temporary directory. ref display the name of your temporary directory. find search the database for the Internet host/address. ret retrieve files from PUBLIC directory. ftp start an TCP/FTP request. push push a file to a Janet NRS Host. pull pull a file from a Janet NRS Host. q display the status of your push/pull requests. netnews display netnews file. gripe send any gripes/suggestions to liaison. lo logout. exit logout.
Note that all commands should be typed in lower case, and that command line arguments may not be used - simply enter the command, and you will be prompted for any further infor- mation that is required.
The majority of these commands should be self-explanatory, however the commands ftp, push and pull will now be discussed in more detail.
