This step-by-step user's guide provides information and instructions on how to join, understand and use the Internet, which is the world's largest network. Still growing rapidly, the Internet links more than seven million business, individual, education, research, and government users in 45 countries with thousands of on-line resources and services. Explained at a level appropriate for new users who may never have logged on to a computer network before, "The Internet Guide for New Users" covers topics including: how the Internet works, how it is similar to and different from networks like America On-Line, CompuServe, Prodigy, and how to join it; how to use core Internet facilities like remote login (telnet), file transfer (FTP), electronic mail, the Usernet "Internet BBS" - plus the basics of Internet naming and addressing, and using UNIX; popular Internet tools, resources, and services, including "point-and-shoot Internet navigation" tools like Archie, Gopher, HYTELNET, WAIS, and WorldWideWeb that make using the Internet easier and more valuable than ever before; resources and communities of interest: education, researchers, libraries, and other users; how to find out what resources and services are available; how to learn more; using on-line database and information services; and being a responsible user, including understanding "netiquette" (Internet manners), working with your system administrator, "Appropriate usage", the costs to use the Internet (and who's paying), security, and other important issues. Written by computer/network journalist Daniel P. Dern, "The Internet Guide for New Users" offers practical how-to help for new Internet users and experienced users/administrators and will help MIS managers understand how the Internet can be a valuable resource to their organizations.
