Hacking Tymnet




 ----------------
[ HACKING TYMNET ]
 (by Silicon Rat)
 ----------------


 TYMNET IS A GATEWAY SYSTEM, LIKE TELENET.  AND CAN BE USED TO ACCESS SYSTEMS
THAT MIGHT NOT OTHERWISE HAVE LOCAL NUMBERS.  THIS IS JUST A BASIC FILE,
INTENDED FOR SOMEONE WHO HAS NEVER USED TYMNET BEFORE, OR TO HELP SOMEONE WHO
IS LEARNING TO USE TYMNET.


  CONNECTING:
 -------------

  MOST TYMNET SYSTEMS USE THE FOLLOWING SETTINGS:
 
 --- FULL DUPLEX
 --- NO PARITY (OFF OR SPACE PARITY)
 --- 1 STOP BIT
 --- MOST ARE 300/1200 BAUD

 ALSO, MOST USE CONTROL-S TO PAUSE LISTING AND CONTROL-Q TO RESUME LISTING.
CONTROL-X STOPS LISTING.
  TO ENSURE THAT YOU ARE ALLOWED TO USE CONTROL KEYS, ENTER CONTROL-R BEFORE
TELLING TYMNET WHO YOU WISH TO LOG ONTO.

 FOR THOSE OF YOU WHOSE TERM ARE CAPABLE OF SENDING AN ESCAPE, AN ESCAPE WILL
GET YOU BACK TO THE [...LOG IN] AREA IF YOU EVER FIND YOURSELF STUCK IN A
POSITION WHERE YOU ARE ABOUT TO BE DISCONNECTED.

  WHEN YOU FIRST CONNECT WITH TYMNET;

 [PLEASE TYPE YOUR TERMINAL IDENTIFIER]

 WILL PRINT ACROSS YOUR SCREEN.  SOMETIMES THIS WILL BE NOTHING BUT A BUNCH OF
GARBAGE, WHICH COULD MEAN THAT YOU CONNECTED AT THE WRONG BAUD, OR THAT YOUR
SYSTEM WILL NEED AN ID LETTER OTHER THAN 'A' OR 'E'.  BUT, FOR MOST PURPOSES,
'A' WILL BE THE LETTER THAT YOU WILL ENTER, BUT 'E' IS ALSO A COMMON ID.
HOWEVER, B,C,D,F,G,I,AND P ARE ALSO VALID ID'S.

   (COMMIES, APPLES, TI'S & TRS'S USE 'A' OR 'E')

 THEN A LOCATION NUMBER, WILL BE SHOWN.

      [-4004-075-]

 AFTER THAT, TYMNET WILL ASK YOU TO;

  [PLEASE LOG IN.]

 YOU WILL ENTER THE SERVICE NAME OR INITIALS AND BE SENT TO THAT SERVICE.

(EXAMPLE:)


 [PLEASE TYPE YOUR TERMINAL IDENTIFIER] A
 [-4004-075-]

 [PLEASE LOG IN.] IBM

------

 IN THE EXAMPLE, TYMNET SENT EVERYTHING IN [] BRACKETS, AND YOU ENTERED
EVERYTHING IN LOWER CASE.

  FOLLOWING THAT PROCEDURE WOULD SEND YOU TO IBM.


  SYSTEMS ON TYMNET:
 --------------------


   TRY USING NAMES, OR SIMPLE 3-5 CHARACTER CODES.  REMEMBER, NEW USERS ARE
SUPPOSED TO BE ABLE TO USE TYMNET SECONDS AFTER UNPACKING THEIR COMPUTERS,
SO THINK SIMPLE.

   ALSO, TRY GETTING A BUNCH OF SYSTEM NAMES THAT WORK ON TELENET, UNINET,
OR DATAPAC AND TRY THEM ON TYMNET.  TRY ENTERING THE NAME, INITIALS OR
INITIALS & NUMBERS.

 --- EXAMPLES:

DOW1;; & DOW2;;  = DOW JONES, WHEN TYMNET ASKS FOR SERVICE, ENTER 'DJNS'.
STANDARD
                   10 CHARACTER PASSWORD.

CIS01 & CIS02 & CPS  = COMPUSERVE, STANDARD FORMAT.

LEXIS & NEXIS = LEXIS & NEXIS, WHEN IT ASKS FOR TERMINAL ID, ENTER '.LEXIS' OR
                '.TELV950'

NEWS1 = NEWSNET

ONTYME = ONTYME (MCDONALD DOUGLAS INTERNATIONAL DATA LIBRARY)

IBM = (WHAT ELSE?) I.B.M

ART = HONEYWELL'S 'SYSTEM M'.

DIR. = DIRECTORYNET.

TEL = ??? (CONTACT ME IF YOU FIND OUT)

INDEX = MTECH/COMMERCIAL SERVICES DIVISION.

VAX1 = UCC UCEL ON-LINE

OPER = NET940/111

PLINK = PEOPLE/LINK  6 CHAR ID.  9 CHAR PASSWORD.

 THOSE AREN'T ALL THE TYMNET NUMBERS, BUT YOU SHOULD BE ABLE TO FIND ONE
TO CALL.


  CAUTION:
 ----------


  TYMNET SEEMS TO BE BECOMING AWARE OF HACKERS, AND CALLING THE SAME PLACE TOO
MANY TIMES IN A ROW COULD HAVE COMPLICATED RESULTS. ESPECIALLY IF YOU ONLY
GO TO 1 OR 2 DIFFERENT SYSTEMS.
 TRY ALL THE ID'S UNTILL YOU FIND SEVERAL THAT WORK WITH YOUR SYSTEM, THEN
NOT ONLY CAN YOU GO TO SEVERAL DIFFERENT PLACES SO AS NOT TO ATTRACT ATTENTION
TO YOURSELF, BUT YOU CAN ENTER A DIFFERENT ID LETTER ALSO.
