Short content description
-------------------------

This very short document is the first formal yearly report of 
the RIPE NCC. It contains an overview of the expenditures during
the first year of operations. For detailed information, please
consult the Quarterly Reports.


FTP Access
----------
All RIPE documents and Internet RFC`s are available via anonymous FTP
from host ftp.ripe.net.  Type "ftp ftp.ripe.net". 

Login with username "anonymous" supplying your email address as the 
password.  After logging in, type "cd ripe/docs/ripe-docs" followed 
by the command "get <filename>".  For example "get ripe-092.txt".
 
Electronic Mail Retrieval of Documents
--------------------------------------
Documents can also be retrieved from the RIPE document store using a
mail server program.  For more information on how to use the program,
send email to: mail-server@localhost with "send HELP" in the body text. 

RIPE NCC Interactive Information Server
---------------------------------------
Type "telnet host info.ripe.net".  This is a menu driven service allows
the document store to be browsed.  After reading documents you are
prompted as to whether you would like to receive an email copy of the
document you have just read.  If you would, you simply enter your email
address and the document will be mailed to you. 

Below are details of alternative methods of access.
 
Gopher Access
-------------
The same documents are available via a "gopher" server at
"gopher gopher.ripe.net".

WAIS Access
-----------
There is also a "WAIS" server at wais.ripe.net, where there is a WAIS index
for RIPE documents "ripe-docs.src" 

WWW Access
----------
For those who wish to add this home page at the RIPE NCC to their own
customized home pages, it can be accessed as:

http://www.ripe.net
 
 
MIME Mail Reader
