or the tty command tells you if you are run from a _terminal_ session
(either telnet, Terminal, ... in contrast with launched from Tracker)
so if what you echo will go somewhere or not.
On other OSes telnet/rlogin use to set the REMOTE_HOST env, seems the BeOS 
one doesn't.

Geee, I have tcsh by default on solaris... never remember how to do anything 
complex with it, so I have to launch bash :-(
we have ssh (=client) already, just need sshd
