    shell accounts

    Due to software modem problems, i've had to set me up with a free shell account at phenix.rootshell.be and for my first time, i can surf the net with linux. i was just wondering what i can do with a shell account. it isn't really restricted because i can use telnet, ftp, and finger. but what else can i do?

    Shell accounts rule.... u can download software and run it on the remote machine..... if you get in ssh and they inabled remote X u can even download programs witha GUI and run them.... this is great if the server wich the shell sits on has a fast internet connection so you can download big things really quick and then run them on that computer have fun

    You can telnet to other computers and your IP will be that of the shell account's computer. It think that's pretty cool.
