Friday, August 23, 2013 Networking is a huge part of Linux and in order to be adept at it, one needs to know network apps. Here are a few that will tickle the brain cells and keep you sharp when the terminals are running.

netscape, linux, linux networking tools, networking tools, linux tools, elm, pine, open source for you, linux for you, linux netscape, linux networking beginners, learning linux, linux learners guide




Netscape
If you have the netscape installation, which you should, then, try running netscape on the X terminal. The problem though is that the versions of Netscape available right now are quite large and faulty. When you are not connected to the Internet, Netscape often stops working completely and looks as if it has hanged.

netscape -display host:0.0
If the machine that you’re working on has the permission to access and display on the ‘host’ machine, then run netscape on the one you are working on and transfer the output onto the machine called ‘host’.

lynx file.html
This is used when you are on the text mode and want to browse the internet from it, or if you want to view an html file.

pine
Local mail is mail that is sent by someone on your network to your computer. Pine reads this mail for you. You can also use Elm for this. You have Netscape for reading your email otherwise.

elm
As mentioned above, this does the same job as pine.

mutt
Quite aptly named, this is a fast and very useful mail reader. It is a basic app though.

mail
This is also a basic tool for emails and the commands mentioned above are much better.

licq
Icq clients are instant messaging clients. While this one is a good option, you can also go for kxicq. Older Linux distributions do not have icq clients installed in them.

talk username1
This is a network command that is used to talk to other users who are logged into the machine that you’re working on. You can use the command talk username1@machinename if you want to talk to someone on a different computer. Accepting a command is done through the ‘talk username2’. Rejecting a conversation is done through ‘mesg n’.

mc
Mc stands for Midnight Commander. It is used to launch the file manager.

telnet server
You us this command when you want to connect to a different machine using the TELNET protocol. One must have a login on the remote machine they are trying to connect to.

rlogin server
It stands for remote login and allows you to log into a remote machine. It uses the login id and password from your current session automatically and asks for a password in case the login fails.

rsh server
This does the same thing as the above command. It stands for remote shell.

ftp server
This command is useful for copying files to a remote machine or from it. In order to add extra features for graphical user interface, you can use ncftp.
