    Hi,

    Bit of a rag-bag...don't know all of them, but some of them I can tell you about...

    : Echo
    A statement that works in DOS and UNIX in a batch file/shell script to print text to the screen. E.G.
    echo Hello

    : File transfere (FTP)
    Protocol for transferring files between 2 machines.

    : Telnet
    Lets you have shell access to a remote machine like you were there in front of it.

    : Domain Name Service
    Resolves domain names (e.g. www.example.com) into IP numbers (e.g. 123.45.67.8).

    : Whois
    Allows you to find out who owns a domain name.

    : Finger
    Allows you to get information on a user.

    : Hostname
    Same as a domain name I think....hmmm...can't be 100% sure there may be a differrence.

    : Post Office Protocol (POP)
    The standard incoming mail protocol that allows you to download email from a mail server.

    : Password Generator
    Program that makes passwords that are supposedly secure.

    : Internet Relay Chat
    A chat system in common use.

    : InfoSeek
    Search engine?

    Hope this helps and is what you were after!

    Jonathan

    not really the same. Hostnames as far as I know are only used on networks. I have a unix network and can identity with each system with a simpler name like 'Laptop', 'OfficePC12', 'intranet.mydomain.com

    instead of laptop.mydomain.com, officePC12.mydomain.com, intranet.mydomain.com which would be the domain names for each computer that makes them accessible over the internet.

    Ah, yes...you're right. :) There is a differrence after all....as I said, I wasn't 100% certain. Thanks for clearing that one up.
