Your web account resides on the web server, people.math.yorku.ca.  All files transferred directly to people will have world readable permissions thus eliminating the steps involved in changing file permissions.

Telnet is disabled on people.  You will only be able to FTP files.  You can use ftp through MS-Dos.  If you would like a GUI FTP program go the http://www.cns.yorku.ca/computing/apps/wsftp/index.html and download WS-FTP.

The hostname is people.math.yorku.ca.  Your username and password will be the same as that on Pascal.
