MPE Client Library
Download and Installation Instructions
The following describes how to do a "tar" download/upload of the
MPE Eloquence client software to your HP 3000 system.
In your PC/Mac web browser,
installation archive file to your local hard drive.
The file is about 540KB in size and by default is called "eloqtar.tar".
Save the file somewhere you can find it later, perhaps
Now, you need to transfer the eloqtar.tar file to your
HP 3000. Please note that you must be logged in as a user
with SM capability; our examples assume MANAGER.SYS,PUB.
There are several ways to upload the file:
Upload with a terminal emulator
This example uses WRQ Reflection.
Issue MPE file equation command:
Issue WRQ transfer command (press <Alt>Y to get to command
send eloqtar.tar to *eloqtar binary rec=256
Alternately, you can use Reflection's File Transfer Dialog. In
that case be sure to select the BINARY transfer type,
record length 256, and be sure to upload the file
to "*eloqtar" (Note the "*"; we are back referencing
the MPE file equation we set earlier)
The bottom line, regardless of what terminal emulator you are
using, is that you need to upload the file such that the result
on the HP 3000 is a file with records that are 128W VB.
Upload via FTP
This example uses the Windows bundled FTP client.
Start a DOS window (also called "MSDOS" window)
(Possibly via: click on START, then PROGRAMS, then "Command Prompt")
- CD to the directory where you downloaded the eloqtar.tar file.
Start FTP: FTP yourhp3000computername
(Note: this requires that you are running an FTP server
on your HP 3000)
Logon (within FTP) to MANAGER.SYS
Enter the following FTP commands. Please note that the
file and directory names are CASE SENSITIVE:
put eloqtar.tar ELOQTAR;REC=128,,V,BINARY
Now that the file has been uploaded to your HP 3000, we continue:
- On your HP 3000, verify that the eloqtar file looks
ACCOUNT= SYS GROUP= PUB
FILENAME CODE ------------LOGICAL RECORD----------- ----SPACE----
SIZE TYP EOF LIMIT R/B SECTORS #X MX
ELOQTAR 128W VB 2150 2150 1 2192 5 1
Note: the LIMIT and SECTORS columns may vary slightly, and the LIMIT
column may be larger than the EOF column ... those differences are
not problems. However, the file record must be 128W VB,
and the EOF must match what you see above.
- Extract the installation macro file (ELOQINST.PUB.SYS)
from the tar archive:
:tar.hpbin.sys "xvfo ./ELOQTAR ./ELOQINST"
- Execute the installation macro, which will perform the rest of
the installation, and ask you some questions along the way:
:xeq eloqinst eloqtar
