1.)I learned about telnet's uses at http://oregonstate.edu/aw/tutorials/telnet/, and it is where you can access and tell another computer what to do over the internet as long as you have an account to that program or computer. This is very helpful for ladies that need to keep up work while on maternity leave, they can simply do their work from home. My aunt does this and has a program where she can do some of her work at home just in case she didn't get her projects done at work that day. 2.) I practiced using the telnet at telnet://22.214.171.124 3.) I then logged in as ned and started messing around from there, I got a little confused, of all the computer stuff I have done, I didn't learn much for this, I have known what a telnet does, but have never used it and got confused trying to use it.
