4.3 How do I access loQtus?


Lasciate ogni speranza voi ch'entrate! [Abandon all

Dante Alighieri (1265-1321)
"La Divina Commedia [The Divine Comedy]" (1310-1321)
``Inferno'' canto 3, l. 1

TCP/IP connection with a machine that is directly on the internet.
With such a set-up, you should be able to use the popular Mosaic ``web

fine Macintosh program MacWeb) to access the WWW on these machines.
Winweb and Cello are two alternative programs for the PC. Both are
much easier to set up than Mosaic.
If you have an account on a Unix machine, you may be able to run a
program called ``lynx'' which offers a text-only version of the WWW.
For more information, see your local information technology people, or
just try to type ``lynx'' at your unix prompt.
