RECOGNIZING AN HP 2000
----------------------
  An HP 2000 can normally be recognised
by the answering prompt PLEASE LOG IN
and the log-in error messages:
ILLEGAL ACCESS
ILLEGAL FORMAT
or
ALL PORTS BUSY

The HP 2000 is a super-mini computer
that can support up to 32 users.

LOGGING ON
----------

  You must log-in within a few minutes
of gaining system attention or the 
system will hang-up on you. The built 
in default is 2 minutes, the SysOp can
however make it from 1 to 256 seconds.
  You will first need to gain system 
attention. This is done by hitting a
certain system attention key and then
return (sometimes this is done twice)
some system attention keys to try are
^J and ^E.
  The system will then print: PLEASE
LOG IN you must then enter your logon
ID, which is in this format:
LNNN,password where L=a letter and
N=a number you enter your logon ID
by typing HELLO-logon ID. Here is an
example:

HELLO-S516,JOSHUA

HELLO can be abreviated as HEL and if
you are using a video terminal you will
tag ,1 to your logon ID so that you can
use ^H for backspace. So your login 
will look like this.

HEL-S516,JOSHUA,1
04-11-87 09:41 PM  PORT #00  HP 2000
READY
*****

                 
SPECIAL NOTE: The password can be up to
6 bytes (though they are often shorter)
the password can not contain any of 
of these Bytes:
^X , ^@ , ^M , ^J , ^S , ^H , comma
space , underscore or back arrow. 
HP suggests that ^E not be used but
it can be done.

SECURITY LEVELS
---------------

  There are three basic security levels
on the HP 2000. They are SYSTEM MANAGER
GROUP MANAGER and USER. There is also
a SysOp but he is hard wired in and 
can not be remote.
  The System Manager is the highest
remote account. His account is always
A000. The System Master has access to
these privlaged commands:

PROTECT makes a file RUN ONLY
UNPROTECT the opposite

DIR lists all files on the system

REPORT tells how much time a user has
used since the last billing period
(in minutes)

PORT gives port configuration for the
32 ports in this format.
character size-baud rate

STATUS info in referance to mass 
storage devices.

  The Group Master is the second high-
est security level. The Group Master
accounts are always in the format Lx00
where L is a letter and x is a number.
For example S500 is group leader for
the S5xx group (such as S516). And may
Protect and Unprotect Group files.
   Users are the lowest security level
they have no special privliges and can
only manipulate files in there own 
account.
   The HELLO account is also verry 
usefull. It is always Z999 and has the
power to alter the Greeting program
(which is in its catalog space)

FILE LEVELS
-----------
   
   There are three basic file levels
on an HP 2000 they are SYSTEM FILES
GROUP FILES and USERFILES.
   System files can be used by any user
they are listed by typing LIB. Only the
System master can manipulate these.
TO ACCESS THESE FILES TYPE 
GET-$FILENAME  OR EXEC-$FILENAME

 Group files are group dependent
and can be listed by typing GROUP. 
Only a given groups group master may
manipulate these files. TO ACCESS 
THESE FILES TYPE:
GET-*FILENAME  OR  EXEC-*FILENAME

   User files are account dependent
and can be listed by typing CAT. any-
one logged in on a given account can
manipulate the user files of that acc-
ount. TO ACCESS THESE FILES TYPE:
GET-FILENAME  OR  EXEC-FILENAME


BASIC/2000 LEVEL F
------------------

   BASIC/2000 is much like BASIC/3000
which is discussed in my phile 
'HACKING THE HP 3000'. On the HP 2000
BASIC is intigrated into the Operating
System. Statement numbers range from
1 to 9999. If you enter an error the
interpreter will give you an error
message as soon as you hit return on 
that line. If you want to make a string
variable more than one byte in length
then you must dimmention the variable 
by the number of bytes in the string
using the DIM command. The symbol for
exponential is '**'. A full list of
commands should accompany this phile
in the philes HP2000 PART 2 thru HP 2000
 PART 6.

FINAL NOTES
-----------

  The HP 2000 records all log-ins on
the SysOps console so be carefull. The
5 philes accompanying this one consist
of an on-line User Manual which I down
loaded from an HP 2000. If you want to
learn more about BASIC/2000 LEVEL F you
