Telnet and FTP: Remote Login and Retrieval of Information
The Internet is not only for getting mail and looking up airline flight schedules. The Internet can make it as easy to use a computer on the other side of the world as it is to use your own computer. Several programs, such as Telnet, allow you to connect to a remote computer (called a host). You can then use that computer as easily as if you were using a terminal connected directly to that machine. Several forms of protection may be in place to limit such access to approved users. As a result, you will need an account or a password to connect to that computer.
