Module One

I’d never even heard of Telnet before today, however after spending some time playing around it does seem familiar to the library data base I used when I was in high school.

Typing in the Deakin address was the easy part, from there I was lost. Thank goodness for the ? Help  menu, after going through this I realised I had to have a ‘o’ before the address to tell the system what to do, suddenly I was in the system!!

From there it was pretty straight forward, each page had the prompts telling you want could be done.

When I opened up my email address and the email from Deakin was sitting there, it was like I’d won the lottery, it might be one tiny step, but it’s a step all the same!!

Although simple Telnet did the job of finding the book, I did find myself always going for my mouse however, I’m no longer used to a keyboard only environment.

FTP: Again something I’d never heard of before, however again it was pretty easy to understand the basics of it. I logged on to the Curtin site without a problem and found the readme.txt file without too much hassle and found the missing word, capitalisation.

Not sure what I can use FTP for, but I’m sure I’ll find out soon!

Traceroutes:

After trying a traceroute from http://centralops.net/co/ to curtin.edu.au I received the following information
