Trumpet Winsock

Just to prove we tested this, table 4.2 shows the configuration file (trumpwsk.ini) from the PC running the Mosaic configuration above.

Table 4.2:  Configuration of Trumpet Winsock

These configuration parameters are very site specific, so please change them in accordance with your Internet Provider's instructions. The first three fields and the sixth (domain=) are specific to your machine, and using the ones in this example will not work! The domain name server (dns =) indicated is also not really a good guess for this field, although it will in fact serve. The other fields are for workable performance over an ethernet. If you are using Slip, enable the slip lines and set the port and baudrate to be appropriate to the modem you are using. If you are on a 2400 baud dial-up line, it is advisable to change the Mosaic.ini file to unset the Display Inline Images field, as this will tie up the line and make WWW performance less pleasant.
