CAS Registry Numbers on STN: Appendix 1 -- Logon Procedures.

Appendix 1 — Logon Procedures

Use the STN Login Card for instructions on using Sprintnet (formerly Telenet), Tymnet, Internet, or Compuserve. NOTE: to use STN, you do not need to open an account with these telecommunications services; STN has an account with each service. You simply need the service's local telephone number.

Logon macros for automatic logon are available with various telecommunication software packages. For more information on using these with STN, contact the STN Software support desk at 1-800-848-6538.

  1. Dial 614-447-3781.
  2. When you hear a high pitched sound, connect your telephone receiver to the modem (with some software packages, this will be done automatically), and press the carriage return twice.

    enter <CR> <CR>

  3. STN welcomes you and asks you to enter the letter X. Enter X and press the carriage return.
