A host or server in Telehack is an independent node on the network. Most hosts are connected to other hosts, presumably via the early internet. However, there are groups of hosts connected only to each other and not to the rest of the network. Likewise, many BBSs are disconnected from the rest of the network, and can only be accessed by dialup.

For the most part, when this Wiki refers to a host or server, we're not talking about a BBS.

Hosts are run on many different OSs, including:

*AIX

*ATT

*AUX 

BSD
Dynix
HP-UX
IBM
MACH

*MIL
SunOS
SysV
TEL/OS
Ultrix
VMS
Xenix

Each OS is not particularly important, except that rootkits and other exploits are tailored for a specific OS.

Commands useful when approaching hosts are:

hostname
netstat
rlogin
telnet
traceroute
uupath
