Download CRT from http://www.vandyke.com .

Install it, open it and connect to freeshell.org with your log in details.

Now you get something like a command line where you can use some UNIX commands.
If you want to find out what command you can use type "help".

that's it :)

btw: the freewebspace of freeshell.org su*cks because their server is a) slow and b) often down
Yeah... what I mean is something like freeshell.org. But I still don't know for what purpose do we use freeshell? Just for email or webspace? What's the advantages?
