Welcome to the netINS
Showcase. As a contributor, you may use 20 megabytes of disk space
to make information available to the world via the World Wide Web.
Your Showcase space
is located on showcase.netINS.net (with telnet and FTP
access through basic.netins.net).

To upload files to
your Showcase account from a Macintosh connected through a PPP
connection, we recommend you use Fetch. Start up this program and
go to the "New Connection" window (this may come up automatically
when you start Fetch.) Fill in the following information:
Host: basic.netins.net User ID: Your Username (the part
of your email address before the "@") Password: Your Email Password Directory: .web (this will take you straight to the directory
that your web site resides on)
When you have filled
this in, click on "OK" and you will be connected.
To upload files, click
on 'Put File'. Locate the files on your hard drive and then click
on "Open". You will be asked how you want to upload the file. If
it is a plain text file (like an HTML document) upload it as Text.
If it is a graphic file (like a GIF or JPEG file) upload it as
Raw Data. Please note that your Showcase files reside on a Unix
system, and can not have spaces in the file name. Also, file names
are case sensitive. We suggest using all lowercase letters for
your file names, such as 'webpage.html' to avoid confusion.
NOTE: Your "home page" must be called index.html and
should overwrite the existing index.html file that resides
in your .web directory. This will remove the "Already
Registered" page that is found when you look at your Showcase
