We have added aliases for the Neutron Web Server and ftp server
to simplify access and allow moving the server if needed.  The
new WWW URL is:

The new ftp address is:

I have added an "Announcements" section to the Neutron home page which is
intended to include announcements of conferences, schools, proposal
deadlines, etc.  If you have an announcement which should be included
there, please send it via email to: 

        "tgworlton at"

Our ftp server is a VMS machine.  Since VMS file names include version numbers
such as ";12" it may be necessary to rename files to remove the version 
numbers for files copied to PC's or Unix machines.

The Web server is a Windows NT machine.  It has recently been reported that
some users have had trouble accessing Windows NT Web Servers using
Netscape, but not Lynx.  The problem was in the settings of the Winsock
client.  I have attached comments on that problem in case anyone out there
has a problem accessing our Web Server.  If anyone does not know how to use
anonymous ftp or a web browser, contact your local computer experts, or 
send me email.

2 mtu=1500
2 rwin=3072
2 mss=768

3 mtu=552
3 tcprwin=2048
3 tcpmss=512

3 Then restart WinSock and everything works fine!
