This is the software the ISC recommends you install on your Mac or Windows desktop computer to reach Internet services on and off campus (e.g., e-mail, library catalogs, the OED, departmental Gophers, and remote databases). With an IP network connection you can access network services using powerful desktop "client" software featuring graphical user interfaces. With an asynchronous connection signalled by a Dial or Annex network prompt, you use a single software package known as a terminal emulator, which provides character-based access to network services.
For general networking information, see the PennNet Passport, available for $4 at the Book Store or Wharton Reprographics (see the announcements section for information about the new online version of the Passport). For advice and assistance about recommended software, contact your local support provider, the DCCS Help Desk (898-8171 or help@dccs), or the CRC (898-9085, crc@isc, or drop by the CRC at 3732 Locust Walk).
