Login To M-Net
There are four main ways to access M-Net.
You can telnet to m-net.arbornet.org. To do so, click
on this link. Your
operating system probably has a default telnet client already.
Like telnet, only more secure, this text-based interface encryptes
all data between m-net and your computer, including your username and
password. Unix users can use "ssh", but Windows users will have to
download and install an SSH client. Try
PuTTY. It's free and simple.
Web-based SSH Java Client
You can use a web-based SSH client written in Java if your browser supports
Java. To give it a try, click here
Web-based BBS Access
If you already have an account, and only want to access the conferences,
you can use the web-based conferencing utility called BackTalk by
Troubleshoot your connection
We often get requests for help from prospective users who are unable to connect
to M-Net using one or more of the above mentioned methods. Unfortunately most
users omit to mention relevant details. We hope this
page helps you report the problem in a manner that is easier for us to debug.
