Oh, that's me! (I think I broke the thread on the reply - sorry)

There is a slightly newer version (but not as new as it could be) of
Lynx on my page, version 2.8.4pre5. I have that version running on
a Windows 2000 professional laptop right now. Here are some of the
shortcut values I have set:

Shortcut: C:\lynx\lynx.bat
Start in: C:\lynx

Cursor size: Small
Display options: Window
Edit Options: QuickEditMode, Insert Mode

Here's my lynx.bat:

set term=vt100
set home=c:\lynx
set temp=c:\tmp
set lynx_cfg=c:\lynx\lynx.cfg
c:\lynx\lynx.exe %1 %2 %3 %4 %5

I don't see the FastPasting option under W2K shortcut properties.
I can cut and paste to and from the Lynx text window.

I assume that you have network connectivity on your machine?

Does this work from a DOS text window:

C:\>ping -n 2

Pinging [] with 32 bytes of data:

Reply from bytes=32 time=271ms TTL=46
Reply from bytes=32 time=210ms TTL=46

Ping statistics for
    Packets: Sent = 2, Received = 2, Lost = 0 (0% loss),
Approximate round trip times in milli-seconds:
    Minimum = 210ms, Maximum =  271ms, Average =  240ms


  This would show name server responsiveness as well as network
paths are working.

  Running the following command (or one like it) should start
Lynx browsing on a local directory:

C:\> c:\lynx\lynx.bat c:\

  If this fails, then your executable is probably broken.
