You can use remote login to access the UNIX system from your work- place or from home. This will allow text use only. To do this, you must have a modem with your computer, and terminal emulation software. If you already have terminal emulation software, then you only need set it to the parameters required by the composers:
If you do not have any modem software, you can go to the basement of Smith Hall to obtain a copy of Kermit for IBM compatible PCs or MacKermit for the Macintosh. You will need to bring one high density diskette or two low density diskettes in order to get a copy. Kermit comes with documentation on its installation and use. Kermit is also supported by the University, so you will be able to receive assistance from the Helpdesk.
After you have the software setup properly, all you need do is dial the proper number. If you live in New Castle county, you may dial 831-3220. If you live in Kent county, you may dial 734- 1472, and if you live in Sussex county, then you may dial 645- 4052.
