Team.Net Archive Access

Rev. August 9, 1996 RG

The Team.Net Automotive file and Web servers, and how to get there:

There are several automotive mailing lists file archives hosted by Autox.Team.Net. The archives contain lots of technical and other automotive information, pictures, etc., as well as some list digests since 1991.

The file server is a machine where various archives and articles of interest are stored. You may get files via both "anonymous FTP", and by using a World Wide Web (WWW) client.

Mailing lists: Team.Net's lists are run by majordomo, an automatic mail server. To get information about subscribing to a mailing list, check out the Team.Net Mail List Page
