Abstract

A network of over one hundred UNIX computer systems has been established using the telephone system as its primary communication medium. The system is used primarily for software exchange and remote mail, but permits processing with remote resources (files/programs). Several features of the system helped make it successful: low startup cost, no required operating system changes, easy user interface, locally administered security.
