CHAPTER 3 Getting Started

3.1 Logging in

After connecting with a Unix system, a user is prompted for a login username, then a password. The login username is the user's unique name on the system. The password is a changeable code known only to the user. At the login prompt, the user should enter the username; at the password prompt, the current password should be typed.

Note: Unix is case sensitive. Therefore, the login and password should be typed exactly as issued; the login, at least, will normally be in lower case.
