Telnet, also referred to as remote login, allows the user to log into another computer on the net, and use it as if he or she were physically at the network. Telnet programs allow you to give commands to another computer, the host computer, over the connection. Your Internet service provider may offer telnet to provide subscribers with access to information about their accounts. Here are a few tips about Telnet: -- Set your terminal type to VT-One hundred. This enables screen cursor movement once you have logged in. -- If you get stuck while in your remote session, hit the escape sequence, usually the control and right bracket key combination. This will log you off your remote system. -- If greeted with a menu upon login, follow the menu presented to you. -- To see a listing of Telnet sites, access usak.ca and follow the login sequence. For more information on Telnet, please contact your local Internet service provider.
