  INSTALLING A SERIAL MOUSE USING WINDOWS NT WORKSTATION

Objective:      To install a serial mouse on a Windows NT Workstation computer
Parts:          Computer with Windows NT Workstation installed
                Serial mouse
                Available serial (COM) port
Note:           Windows NT Workstation has support for both PS2-style mice and serial mice.
                This exercise demonstrates how to install a serial mouse.
        Step 1. With the computer turned off, connect a serial mouse to an appropriate COM port.
Question 1:     How many pins does a standard serial mouse connector have?



        Step 2. Power on the computer and verify that Windows NT Workstation loads.
        Step 3. Logon to Windows NT Workstation using the userid and password provided by the
                instructor or lab assistant.
     Step 4. After login, Windows NT Workstation detects the new serial mouse and installs a
             driver for it.
Question 2: Which COM port is your serial mouse installed on?

                            Installing an Internal Modem Using Windows NT Workstation




                                                                 Name

                     INSTALLING AN INTERNAL MODEM USING
                          WINDOWS NT WORKSTATION

Objective:      To install and configure an internal modem in Windows NT Workstation
Parts:          Computer with Windows NT Workstation installed
                Internal modem with drivers for NT Workstation
Note:        Windows NT Workstation does not support plug and play. Because of this, you
             may have to do more modem configuration to prevent it from conflicting with
             other system resources.
     Step 1. Manually configure the modem with a COM port and IRQ that does not conflict with
             any of your computer’s existing system settings.
Question 1: What IRQ and COM port settings did you use?



        Step 2. Remove the computer case and, using proper ESD precautions, install the internal
                modem in an appropriate slot. Secure the modem with a retaining screw.
        Step 3. Plug an analog phone line into the proper modem port.
        Step 4. Turn on the computer and verify that Windows NT Workstation loads.
        Step 5. Logon to NT Workstation using the userid and password provided by the instructor
                or lab assistant.
     Step 6. From the Start menu, point to the Settings option, click on the Control Panel option,
             and then double-click on the Modems control panel icon. Click on Next to allow
             Windows NT to attempt to detect the modem.
Question 2: How many COM ports did Windows NT query?



        Step 7. When Windows NT detects the modem, check what type of modem was detected. If
                the detected type is not right, click on Change and select the proper modem type from
                the list or click on Have Disk and enter a path to the driver location.
     Step 8. When the proper modem is listed, click on the Next button.
Question 3: What modem type did you select to install?

     Step 9. After Windows NT installs the modem driver, click on the Finish button to complete
             the installation.

                           Installing an External Modem Using Windows NT Workstation




                                                                Name

                    INSTALLING AN EXTERNAL MODEM USING
                         WINDOWS NT WORKSTATION

Objective:      To understand how to install an external modem on Windows NT Workstation
Parts:          Windows NT Workstation
                External modem with power cable
                Serial cable
Note:           You can install both internal and external modems on a Windows NT Workstation.
                In this exercise, you will install an external modem.
        Step 1. Using an appropriate RS-232 serial cable (9- or 25-pin), connect the external modem
                to a COM port on the Windows NT Workstation computer, and connect the modem’s
                power supply. Turn on the external modem.
        Step 2. Power on the computer and verify that NT Workstation loads.
        Step 3. Logon to Windows NT Workstation using the userid and password provided by the
                instructor or lab assistant.
     Step 4. From the Start menu, choose Settings, and then select Control Panel. The Control
             Panel opens.
Question 1: What other method can be used to open the Control Panel?



     Step 5. Double-click on the Modems control panel icon and click on the Next button. Win-
             dows queries the available COM ports to detect the modem.
     Step 6. When Windows detects the new modem, the Install New Modem window opens.
     Step 7. If the modem type listed is incorrect, click on Change. Select the proper modem type
             from the list, or, if your modem is not listed, click on Have Disk and enter a path to
             the modem driver files.
     Step 8. When the proper modem type is selected, click on OK.
     Step 9. Click on Next and the Location Information window opens.
    Step 10. From the Location Information window, enter your Area Code, Outside line access
             numbers (if any), and your dialing type (tone or pulse). Click on Next.
    Step 11. Click on Finish to complete your modem installation. The Modems Properties win-
             dow opens.

    Step 12. From the Modems Properties window, highlight the newly installed modem and select
             Properties. From the General tab, you can adjust the modem’s speaker volume and
             the maximum Port Speed. From the Connection tab, you can configure your connec-
             tion preferences, call preferences, and advanced connection preferences.
Question 2: Which COM port is your modem installed on? (Hint: Check the Modems Properties-
             General page)

                                        Using HyperTerminal on Windows NT Workstation




                                                                Name

          USING HYPERTERMINAL ON WINDOWS NT WORKSTATION

Objective:      To understand how to use the HyperTerminal application on NT Workstation
Parts:          Windows NT Workstation with modem installed and configured
Note:           The HyperTerminal application allows a user to establish a connection with
                remote servers through a modem. In this exercise, you will configure a HyperTer-
                minal connection.
        Step 1. Power on the computer and verify that Windows NT Workstation loads.
        Step 2. Logon to Windows NT Workstation using the userid and password provided by the
                instructor or lab assistant.
     Step 3. From the Start menu, choose Programs, Accessories, and then select HyperTerminal.
             The Hyper Terminal utility starts and the Connection Description window opens.
Question 1: Can you start the HyperTerminal utility if you do not have a modem installed and
             configured?



     Step 4. From the Connection Description window, enter a name for the connection, choose
             an icon for the connection, and click on OK. The Connect To window opens.
     Step 5. From the Connect To window, select the Country/Region to dial, enter the Area
             Code and Phone Number to dial, choose the modem to use for the connection, and
             click on OK. Contact the instructor or lab assistant for this information if necessary.
             The Connect window opens.
     Step 6. From the Connect window, ensure that the dial-up information is correct and click on
             Dial. HyperTerminal places the call.
     Step 7. If prompted, enter any required information such as username and password to estab-
             lish the connection.
Question 2: Will you have to go through this entire connection process every time you make a
             HyperTerminal connection?
