Watch Question

If this is not a joke, you meant "login account" instead of "shell account"? Therfor you must ask your administrator for the host you want to have an account for.

Not the solution you were looking for? Getting a personalized solution is easy.

Ask the Experts

If you want a free unix account, go to sdf.lonestar.org.
Use telnet sdf.lonestar.org.
On the login prompt type newuser
Then it will give you an option to create an account with password. After that you can login using telnet with the new account. Hope this helps.

sdf.lonestar.org was not reachable via telnet nor could I locate
an IP address with an NS lookup tool.

You can visit www.Freaks.com to get a FREE UNIX ACCOUNT, but this site need some donation (just a few) from you.
