This section describes the different methods for
accessing the Internet Express documentation.
Reading Documentation Using the Administration
After installation of the Secure Web Server subset
(IAEAPCH), the Internet Express Documentation subset (IAEDOC), and the Internet Express Administration
utility (IAEADM subset), you need access to the Administration utility
for Internet Express (as described in the Administration Guide), so that you can read the documentation following the link from
the Web page at:
where hostname.domain is the host name and domain of the system running Internet Express.
Reading Documentation Using the Public Web
You can also read the documentation without the
Administration utility by using the public Web server (if you chose
to configure one) to access the documentation index page at http://hostname.domain/documents/bookshelf.html. If this URL does not work, verify that the Web server configuration
file, /usr/internet/httpd/admin/conf/httpd.conf, contains the following line:
Alias /documents/ "/usr/internet/docs/IASS/"
The Internet Express documentation files are installed
in the /usr/internet/docs/IASS directory.
You can access the Documentation
Bookshelf installed on your system by entering the following URL (substituting
the name of your system for hostname) in
You can also read the installed
documentation directly from the file system using a Web browser running
on the same system by using the file URL:
Reading Documentation from the Internet Express Installation

Reading Reference Pages for Internet Express Components
Reference pages for Open Source Internet Solutions components are
available in HTML format from the Internet Express Reference Pages
index page. These HTML reference pages can be viewed using
a Web browser.
Alternatively, you can view these reference pages
from a command line in a terminal window, if you modify the search
path for the man(1) command.
The man(1) command's search path needs
to include the following directories for Internet Express component reference
You can specify an alternative search path when
entering the man command by using the M or P options; for example:
# man -M /usr/news/man active.5
You can also define the man command's MANPATH environment variable on the command line or in
a file, such as your .profile file or .login file.
For example, suppose your MANPATH environment variable was defined to be the following:
If you are using the sh or ksh shell, you could modify the MANPATH to add to the search path by adding the following:
# set MANPATH $MANPATH:/usr/internet/pgsql/man:/usr/internet/openldap/man:/usr/news/man: \
# export MANPATH
If you are using the csh shell,
you would use a command line like the following:
# setenv MANPATH $MANPATH:/usr/internet/pgsql/man:/usr/internet/openldap/man: \
For details about defining reference page search
paths, see man(1).
Reading the Open Source Software Component
The product kit also provides documentation (in
ASCII text and HTML) for software components included with Internet Express.
This documentation is located in the /usr/internet/docs directory on the system where Internet Express is installed.

The Internet Services User's Guide explains how to use Pine e-mail and the Pico editor, the TIN news

server, or directly from the Internet Express Installation and
