3.1 Internet and the Domain Name System     continued...

The presence of a firewall between your system and the rest of the Internet is a nuisance at times, but it does not prevent you from using rlogin, FTP, or any other TCP/IP application to access Internet resources. What you need to do is use rlogin to make a connection to the firewall, and then run FTP or other applications from there. Chances are your home directory is mounted on the firewall, so any file transfers you want to make can be done directly.
