Shell Account

A shell account is a connection that enables an end-user's computer to act as a terminal on an Internet host. In this case, the terminal user is not directly on the Internet, but is using a machine that is. This means that functions such as transferring files require an extra "hop"; users must first transfer the file to the Internet host, then download it through the terminal connection to their desktop.
