If you have a telnet program you can use it to connect to net.bluemoon.net to get to your shell account. If not, you can use a regular modem dialup communication program. By "regular" modem communications program we mean a program like HyperTerm in Windows (Programs->Accessories->Communications), Zterm for Macintosh, JRComm for Amiga. A regular modem communications program usually will NOT make a PPP or SLIP connection needed to use programs like Netscape or Microsoft's Internet Explorer. Many versions of windows include a Dos "telnet" command which can be used.
Those of you who use a regular dialup communications program (terminal program) will have to type "internet" at the "host:" prompt after connecting with your modem. Telnet programs for use through PPP connections can be found at our FTP site.
