        Hello!  I would like to take this opportunity to announce some
        MAJOR updates to the TELEBIT Configuration Guides and Technical
        Documentation.  I have enclosed a list of UNIX configuration
        guides and TELEBIT product guides which may be requested via e-mail
        and are also available for "anonymous" FTP from the U.S. and
        international sites listed.

        The updates bring the configuration guides in line with new
        TELEBIT products and newer TELEBIT modem firmware releases.
        In other words, you will not find any reference to "a small
        hole by the RS-232 connector at the back of the modem which
        houses the reset button..." and the need for a straightened
        paper clip.  Optimized modem settings for various UNIX systems,
        as well as a VERY generic UNIX set-up guide for use in the set-up
        of UNIX systems for dial-in/out (getty/tip/cu), Version2 and
        HoneyDANBER UUCP, TCP/SLIP, and Point-to-Point Protocol are
        amongst the guides.  Technical documentation on TCP/SLIP has been
        updated to include new information on the distribution of Van
        Jacobson's Compress TCP/SLIP (TCP/CSLIP) and informational
        updates on PPP.

        Once again, I would like to invite TELEBIT modem users with
        configuration specific and general questions on TELEBIT modem
        set-up in UNIX and non-UNIX environments to write us at:

                UUCP:   {uunet, ames, sun, pyramid, decwrl}!telebit!modems

            INTERNET:   mod...@telebit.com

        This will allow us to aid you with the on-line configuration
        documentation we distribute, as well as providing some basic technical
        assistance via e-mail.  Telephone Technical Support is available
        at:

                1-800-TELEBIT   OR      1-408-734-5200

        These two support channels will provide the most immediate response
        for your questions and will prevent any unnecessary cluttering of
        this newsgroup with TELEBIT-specific questions.

        Questions regarding the pricing and availability of TELEBIT modem
        products, as well as distributor/dealer referrals, should be
        addressed to the 1-800-TELEBIT Sales Support line.  We do not
        carry this type of sales propaganda on-line.

        I would also like to ask that TELEBIT modem users copy us on any
        concerns, suggestions, and/or comments regarding our on-line
        configuration guides and technical documents.  Contributions of UNIX
        and non-UNIX system-specific configurations to the TELEBIT on-line
        documentation are ALWAYS welcome!  THANK YOU.

1. Kudos to Telebit. (was: Complaint about telebit)

:
: Well, I can't let this pass without comment.
:
: I have, from Telebit, the following:
:

(list of Telebit products)

:
: I've been nothing but happy with Telebit's responsiveness and performance,
: and have been a loyal customer for many years -- dating back to their early
: Trailblazer days.
:

I agree completely.  I have a pair of DCA Fastlink modems, a pair of
T2500's and a WorldBlazer.  All have been in continuous service without
fail.  The Fastlinks (first batch of Telebit modems produced) have been
operational since the early/mid 80's.  Over the years Telebit has
provided software upgrades with additional features quickly and either
free or at very low cost.

The Fastlink modems are still, years later, the only modems capable of
sustaining an error free data path from San Diego to rural southern Mexico.
They maintain a stable connection over phone lines where the signal
often drops completely for seconds at a time.  A path you can't hold a
normal voice conversation over.  We would upgrade the modems to
Worldblazers, but in truth, see no need.  What we have works very well.

Nothing but rave reviews from this happy camper..
