You can download the <code>tiptunnel</code>
<a href="downloads/tiptunnel-win32.zip">binary for Windows here</a>.
Unzip it, then follow the instructions from the readme.txt file within.
<a href="downloads/tiptunnel-win32.exe">installer for Windows here</a>.
Run the installer, then Internet Explorer should handle the links
correctly (on some versions of IE, you must tell IE to "open" the
ACL files twice every time you use a "Connect to serial line" link;
we are trying to fix this issue.)
You may need to follow the instructions below for Netscape or Mozilla
if you are not using Internet Explorer.

You can download the <code>tiptunnel</code> statically-linked x86

<li>Use <code>gunzip</code>, then <code>tar xvf</code> on the downloaded file.</li>
<li>Move the resulting <code>tiptunnel</code> binary into
a directory of your choice (<code>/usr/local/bin</code>,
or <code>~/bin</code> are two good places.)
Then, when you click on the "Connect to Serial Line" link,
tell your browser to always use that binary
to open files of type "text/x-testbed-acl".

or <code>~/bin</code> are two good places.)</li>
<li>Set up your browser to handle MIME type "text/x-testbed-acl"
as outlined below.</li>
</ul>
<h3>Instructions for Windows</h3>
<ul>
<li>Unzip the distribution into a folder.
Creating a "C:\Program Files\tiptunnel" directory and placing
the files there is a good idea. Be sure the dlls included
in the distribution remain in the same folder as the binary (exe).</li>
<li>Set up your browser to handle MIME type "text/x-testbed-acl"
as outlined below.</li>
</ul>
<h3>Netscape 4.7</h3>

<li>Choose <code>preferences</code> from the <code>edit</code> menu.</li>
<li>Select <code>Navigator</code>, then <code>Applications</code> under
it.</li>
<li>Click the <code>New...</code> button.</li>

<li>Choose <code>Application</code> in the <code>Handled by</code>
box</li>
<li>Next to <code>Application</code>, either type the path to the
<code>tiptunnel</code> binary, or use <code>Choose...</code> to find
it.</li>
<li>Now, <b>be sure to</b> put a space, then <code>%s</code> after the
path to the application in the box. This tells netscape to actually
pass the aclfile into tiptunnel (Mozilla does not require this;
see below.)</li>
<li>Click <code>OK</code>, then <code>OK</code> again.</li>
<li>Clicking a "connect to serial line" link should now
bring up a connection in an xterm window.</li>

<li>Select <code>Navigator</code>, then <code>Helper Applications</code>
