There's no single thing you can point to and say `That is the
Internet', unless you're one the experts on the nightly TV news.
In other words, you're on the Internet now. Congradulations. :-)
:What I would like to know is what command would I use to actually access
:the internet from my work server?
As for specific commands, you'll want to check with the local system
manager, and if that's you, you'll want to check in the documentation
for the package(s) you've purchased. (I don't intend this to sound
rude -- this part of the question is exceedingly site-specific, and
it would appear you already understand the generic `use telnet' part.)
:I am guess I will only have text access, fine, I have that now, but
:telnetting tends to slow.
If telnet is slow, this points to an underconfigured `pipe', or some
sort of communications problem.
As for tools for OpenVMS, the Internet Product Suite CD-ROM is around
and orderable for a small charge -- it contains Internet-related OpenVMS
freeware and seperately-licensed commercial software packages.
