This used to work from this site, however the PAD command has recently been
removed from the local server. If you don't have access to the PAD
command you could try TELNET to :-
These convertors are arranged in (obvious) geographical locations in the
U.K. - choose the nearest. Once you get the 'Connect to:' prompt just
type 'pss-gate'. David's instructions follow from this point.
This method seems to work for this '.ac' site !
