You can use the telnet application on your computer to connect to your Unix account. If you use a Unix terminal or workstation, you can usually enter your user id and password on the opening screen to gain access.

Here is how I accessed my account on the miller.cs.uwm.edu machine by entering this URL in my Web browser:

telnet://miller.cs.uwm.edu

The telnet application application popped up with a Unix window giving me a chance to login to my Unix account:
