Abstract:

Everyone seems to be talking about the Internet now. Its the hot topic at conferences, its in all the journals. But talk to the Army community and, and you will find a very small number of them are actually using the Internet in any meaningful way. Theres reason for that, in fact many reasons. The first is that the Internet is not so easy to use. It requires access, which not all have. It is very diffuse-many resources, scattered over thousand of computers, and there are no directories. Even worse, if you actually manage to overcome the access problem and find information you want, the computer sneers at you in language you havent heard before, and your keyboard doesnt work right. This manual will help you overcome some of those problems. Weve identified a few sample resources that may actually be of some assistance to your work. Weve identified some techniques that will make it a little easier to connect up to certain computers. Weve tried to relate the Internet to TRADOC, and TRADOC host computers. Weve tried to give some sense of the widening horizons that the Internet can give us, and the unmanageable masses of data we can access
