Re: OT: Opinions on Earthlink?

Win 98 (and presumably the newer versions, as well) has a telnet client
built-in. Just go to a MS-DOS prompt and type: telnet <hostname>

Running Linux, I have a shell account on my own computer, of course. I
also have a Linux box as my firewall/router and can telnet to it from
anywhere, if necessary. Actually I use SSH (secure shell) instead of
telnet, since everything is encrypted and I'd rather not have
unencrypted passwords going out if there is another way to make the
connection. I also have accounts on a few other machines around the
country, which came in handy when my DSL modem failed and it took about
three weeks to get a replacement.
