Amahi Alphabet Soup - part 2 of 3

As part of my warm-up for a presentation on Amahi to the MHVLUG, I’m dropping’ some knowledge…and links to related Amahi apps.

VNC - Virtual Network Computing;  a graphical desktop sharing system that uses the RFB protocol to remotely control another computer. It transmits the keyboard and mouse events from one computer to another, relaying the graphical screen updates back in the other direction, over a network.  App:  VNC, WebVNC, NoVNC

SSH - Secure Shell; a network protocol for secure data communication.  The best-known application of the protocol is for access to shell accounts on Unix-Like operating systems. App:  MindTerm, Monitorix

SMTP - Simple Mail Transfer Protocol; an Internet standard for electronic mail (e-mail) transmission across Internet Protocol (IP) networks. App: Amahi Mail System, Simple Groupware, RoundCube

FTP - File Transfer Protocol; a standard network protocol used to transfer files from one host to another host over a TCP-based network, such as the Internet. FTP is built on a client-server architecture and uses separate control and data connections between the client and server.  FTP users may authenticate themselves using a clear-text sign-in protocol but can connect anonymously if the server is configured to allow it. App:  net2ftp, vsftpd, proftpd, PHFTP

RSS - Really Simple Syndication;  a family of web feed formats used to publish frequently updated works—such as blog entries, news headlines, audio, and video—in a standardized format.  App:  Rnews, Tiny Tiny RSS, Gregarius

IRC - Internet Relay Chat; a protocol for real-time Internet text messaging (chat).  App:  ZNC

That’s it for the initialisms.  Coming Soon - Part 3 of 3 - Words and Phrases!
