If you have access to an ftp utility but are not familiar with how to
use it, here are some hints. You probably need to issue a command like:
(or alternatively just start up your ftp and enter
"open phoenix.physiol.su.oz.au" when it prompts for a command). If your
system cannot resolve remote hostnames, use the number "188.8.131.52"
instead of "phoenix.physiol.su.oz.au".)
You should get a message like:
Connected to phoenix.physiol.su.oz.au.
220 phoenix FTP server (Version 5.60+UA) ready.
Enter the login name "ftp" and you should get a response like:
331 Guest login ok, send ident as password.
It is customary to enter your E-mail address as the "password".
You will then get a warning about what will happen if you do nasty things
to our machine. Assuming you only want to collect the ans information
files, you may consider yourself authorised to do so. In response to the
ftp prompt, enter:
In response to the ftp prompt enter the command:
(or "get info.txt" if you want the text only version).
You should get a response like:
200 PORT command successful.
150 Opening ASCII mode data connection for info.ps (68654 bytes).
226 Transfer complete.
local: info.ps remote: info.ps
73204 bytes received
Then in response to the ftp prompt, give the command:
You should then have copy of the file(s) on your machine, and can examine
or print them locally.
