Then it is time for me to learn SSH. I have not yet learned how to use it.
This is what I love about LUGOD you get to learn without the shame of having
to admit that you don't know it all.

What is the best place to start learning SSH I will try linuxdoc.org first.

Thanks Bill;

it's passed as an environment variable (not sure exactly how :) )

For example, "xterm" is a terminal type that gets sent to my ISP when
I SSH or telnet from my Linux box when I'm in X-Window:

3/M/home/n/nbs>echo $TERM

PS - you want to use SSH.  It's secure.  Telnet is far from it.
