RISC OS HowTo
One of the aims of WROCC is to enable its members to help each other
use RISC OS. Over the years, there have been many useful tutorials,
hints and tips published in our monthly
newsletter, discussed on our mailing list
or debated at meetings.
This page aims to bring together some of these and make them available to
the wider RISC OS community. Of course, these articles represent only a
small part of what we’re about as a club – you can find details of
how to join us elsewhere on this site.

repeating graphical patterns which do not tessellate.
2009 meeting took the form of an evening “demystifying
networking”, and it resulted in a series of articles in
our newsletter covering different aspects of
the subject in more detail. Here is a selection of them.
These three articles form a small part of The
WROCC Guide to Networking, which is available to purchase from the Club in
A5 printed or PDF form.

- How to Select and Set IP Addresses
- How do you choose what IP addresses to use on your network, and how
do you actually go about assigning them to your computers?
- Looking Up Domain Names
- How can your computer hide IP addresses behind more friendly
textual domain names?
