Name:        [Product name]
Author:      [email address]
Location:    [ftp site] [filename] *
Type:        Packet Generator/Packet Reader/Both
Environment: [msdos][mac][ms-windows][os2][atari-st][unix][etc.]
Formats:     [soup][zipnews]
Description/Comments:

*   the Coast to Coast Software Repository seems to have disappeared
   in mid-1998.

   for the Coast to Coast Software Repository collection, just use
   `coast' for the ftp site, and give the first two directories
   (e.g., `msdos/offline') plus filename. the main mirror is
   ftp://ftp.coast.net/ -- if you connect to
   <http://simtel.coast.net/Coast/> you'll get a list of mirrors.

   most files can be found at <http://simtel.coast.net/Coast/msdos/>,
   and in particular <http://simtel.coast.net/Coast/msdos/offline.html>.

   Coast to Coast seems to be in the process of discontinuing their
   Software Repository.

   Coast/SimTel had decided to stop allowing files which do not include
   the address and phone number of the author, which annoys me
   to no end.  there are rumors that this policy has been dropped;
   if not, consider alternate sites.

   the special entry ``simtelnet:'' indicates the SimTel.net
   collection, available in many places, including CD-ROMs, and its
   main ftp mirror, ftp.simtel.net:/pub/simtelnet/ -- if you connect
   to <http://www.simtel.net/simtel.net/> you'll get a list of
   mirrors [?].

   SimTel.net, which is clearly not a network provider, and is thus
   badly misnamed, is a new Walnut Creek site.

   for the Cica ms-windows collection, just use `cica' for the ftp site,
   and give the first directory (e.g., `util') plus filename.  on cica
   itself, the ms-windows files are in ftp://ftp.cica.indiana.edu/pub/pc/win3/

   see also ftp.winsite.com , cica's new home.

   for the sumex-aim info-mac collection, just use `info-mac' for the
   ftp site.  one of the main info-mac sites is sumex-aim.stanford.edu .
