Hi all. I'm sure if your reading this thread, you are A) A moderator who has to read every thread or B) you know a thing or two about computers. I remeber back when I had no idea what the hell telnet would do. But here's the scoop... I'm in a intro to C++ class and to connect to the server where our C++ compiling programs and files are located, we need to be on campus or connect via telnet. When I connect, it's really slow. I know I'm on a 56k modem but this is driving me nuts. What should I do so I don't have to endure the lagging, it's driving me nuts. Are there better programs that are telnet like? Or am I doomed to deal with this?
