How to set up PCPLUSTD (Procomm Plust Test Drive) to use the ASPECT (ASP) programming language within Procomm
written by Stephan Barnes  "M4phr1k")

1) First get PCPLUSTD (it's on my site)

2) Install it (unzip) wherever you would like (it's a DOS based program - old and simple)

3) In the directory you installed the program to DELETE the file called PCPLUS.PRM -- (this is a PARAMETER FILE that holds the settings, you need to set up PCPLUSTD for wherever your COM is for your Modem)

(I HAVE INCLUDED THIS SETUP DESCRIBED IN THE PCPLUSTD.zip file in the link above)

4) Execute PCPLUSTD.exe - (this is the core Procomm Plus program) get beyond the Intro screen (hit enter) You will be left in the terminal window.

5) Type ALT-P (this will bring up the COM port and line and parity settings menu)

6) Change your settings to your COM and Preference - In this example I have chosen COM 4 and 2400,E,7,1 --- Even Parity was set for dialing my TYM800.ASP - tymnet example of how you could set up a brute force. This is included also in the PCLUSTD.zip file.

Probably, the more popular setting is N,8,1 You may have to switch between both PARITY settings to get good results when you dial up a connection. Generally odd looking data on N,8,1 can be cleared up with E,7,1 and vice versa.

7) MAKE SURE TO SAVE YOUR CHANGES (option 34) hit ESC

8) In the TERMINAL window type ATDT and see if you hear a DIAL TONE. If you did, you probably are ready to go. If you didnt you will need to mess with your COM port setting in the LINE/PORT setup Type ALT-P (this will bring up the COM port and line and parity settings menu) to get it right.

9) You MAY need to type ALT-S to set up DUPLEX and EMULATION. If you do need to:

TYPE ALT-S, TERMINAL OPTIONS, and then TOGGLE to GET THE SAME SETTINGS - MAKE SURE THEY SAVE (this is pretty easy) and then when done

MAKE SURE TO HIT SAVE SETUP OPTIONS ! ! !

YOU SHOULD BE READY TO GO to use ASP scripts throughout my site (the only major difference between this and you for success is

SWITCHING between different COM (1,2,3,4) settings and different BAUD/PARITY settings (E,7,1 and N,8,1)
