File transfer and remote control
Web browser: the number one way to download (save a file to a local machine). At UB you can also upload files to your Web space.
FTP: the File Transfer Protocol is the most used mean to upload files in the Net, and a close second to Web browser in file downloads.
Telnet/SSH: allows you to login remotely in another computer you have an account and execute command line, non-graphical, commands.
