The simplest way to connect to a MUD is to telnet to it. However, using
telnet by itself connects you to the standard 'login' port, and you need
to know which port the MUD is actually using. For example, you'd need
to do 'telnet 3000'.

There are also front-end programs called 'clients' that make managing
your interaction with a MUD much easier; last I heard, the most popular
one was 'TinyFugue'.

The best way to get information on Usenet is not to ask a question,
but to post the wrong information.
