Post by du.. » Sat, 19 Oct 1996 04:00:00

BETA Version 1.5b of the program is available for download from my
WEB Page at

Proxy support should be configured just like you would the
IBM Web Explorer Proxy settings.

Also now supports many Canadian cities and some Australian cities in
addition to the US coverage.

Automatic refresh is now available, just set the OPTIONS for the

Setting the image to the Desktop Background.  This is more flexible
now with choices of Normal, Scaled, and Tiled.

FIREWALL support:

   I need documentation on how to write this correctly.  I know there
is a user defined port, and TCPIP address. I can add that to the
program, but I don't know what conversation must happen with the
FIREWALL to let my session through.
   (I can make it work across IBM's TCPGATE2, because that is the one we have at work.  But
I don't know about other FIREWALLs.)
