AIM Articles -> AIM SysOp
The true AIM SysOp is AIM 1.75.563. I have seen a version of AIM 3.0 claiming to be a newer AIM SysOp. From the one I downloaded, it is just AIM 3.0 with the AIM 1.75.563 SysOp files. You Can Not Suspend with this. I have included a document that I wrote that contains all of the commands for AIM Sysop. The HTML table is below. Click Here to download the Text version.

Note: To get to the Oscar Console, open AIM 1.75.563 and right click on the try icon. Select Oscar Console.
