Intro: Internet: the Old Way
Hello All today I will be showing you how internet was in the old days ;;)
It's a simple "hack" that allows you to feel what old internet usage was like. It doesn't affect your computer in any way. It makes use of command prompt or your browser. I will be showing you both methods. But first you must be online( which you probably are) for this to work.
I know I'm typing in bold!
Step 1: Enable Telnet
Okay, now time to start:
Goto Start Menu===>Control Panel===> Programs and Features===>Turn Windows Features On Or Off (SideBar) then browse down to Telnet Client and tick the box. Close all the windows
The pictures are in order so Control Panel is the first picture and so on.
Now open command prompt.
Type (without quotes) "Telnet Telehack.com" (Pic 5)
If you have configured it correctly it should then say: Connected to Telehack.com (Pic 6)
It will then bring up the 7th picture
Step 2: For a Browser
Once you have Telnet enabled you can also use your browser by typing in the address bar Telehack.com
The cool thing about using you browser is that it's full screen and the writings green.
( Notice the favorites bar :)
Step 3: Make a User
Type a username. (I'm not sure what happens if you type a used username)
Hit enter it will the ask you for a password. Type a password. Make sure it 8 or more characters long.
Now it will say "your username" last login 0s ago
Type ? Read the commands. I'll give you the meanings of the basic ones:
- Zrun: Run a game
- Starwars: watch an assci movie
Step 4: And Your Done
Well done your are done
