Mosaic is a name of a browser or client program by NCSA for accessing
varous resources on the net. In this case its a client that can access a
http server (hypertext server) than can access a server I've set up.

I dunno, depends on what kind of access you have. Mosaic requires that
you have a direct TCP/IP connection, not a dialup shell account. So you

on the net. You can also use a character based browser called Lynx to
browse, but then you cant see the images ofcourse.
