In order to connect to the Dover Public Library Online Catalog, you must have Telnet software installed on your computer.  The Telnet program runs on your computer and connects your PC to the Library server. You can then enter commands through the Telnet program and they will be executed as if you were entering them directly on a computer at the Library.

Windows 95/98 comes with a Telnet application. Netscape 4.x and Internet Explorer should automatically use this Telnet application, so you should not need to do any special setup in your World Wide Web browser to use the Windows 95/98 Telnet. 

If Netscape does not automatically find the program follow these steps: 

1.Make sure you have Telnet software installed 

2. For Netscape 4.x, select Edit, then select Preferences. 

3.Look for the space for entering a Telnet application. Use the Browse button to select your Telnet application, or enter the full path and file name of the Telnet application on your computer. 

Go to for a step by step demonstration of configuring telnet to your Netscape browser.

Below are a few sites that offer telnet software for downloading. NOTE: Be sure you select a package compatible with your operating system (Windows 95/NT, Windows 3.1/3.11, MAC etc.).


Your Mac should already have a communications software package on it called ClarisWorks.  Select these options from drop down menus.
