1. A program by Michael O'Reilly <[email protected]> for people running Unix who have Internet access via a dial-up connection, and who don't have access to SLIP, or PPP, or simply prefer a more lightweight protocol. TERM does end-to-end error-correction, compression and mulplexing across serial links. This means you can upload and download files as the same time you're reading your news, and can run X clients on the other side of your modem link, all without needing SLIP or PPP.ftp://tartarus.uwa.edu.au/pub/oreillym/term/term115.tar.gz.
