Try using *EXEC

I have updated TELSTAR now. It includes TELESOFTWARE :D .

glasstty.com:6502

The protocol used in the Netherlands does not seem to match that used at the end of Prestel's life as far as I can tell. The protocol implemented on TELSTAR works with Commstar for programs up to 25 frames. I have yet to implement 'Zero' routing which isn't much to do and this will allow many more frames.

The test 'Hello World' program hosted at the moment is a tokenised BASIC program and although it is small, it tests the system reasonably well. I will undertake further tests for binary files when I get chance.

The routing engine has been updated to be similar in the way Prestel worked, however there are a couple of very minor bugs which I will sort out. Also I haven't yet implemented the 'Master Page' navigation stuff where IP's had the three digit master pages. At the moment you end up back at the main index. Currently there is only one service running (it will handle multiple connections), it is named MONTY. It is running out of a data centre in London.

Thank you sooo much for all your efforts on the protocol. I will continue to monitor this thread, but will move back to the project discussion page as the product moves forward.

Once again many thanks.
