The TELNET and LAT protocols offer two alternatives for connecting terminals to UNIX hosts over an Ethernet network. The author presents an analysis of the characteristics of typical user input/output (I/O) traffic and of the two protocols, and suggests appropriate metrics for performance evaluation. The results of comparative measurements of the performance of specific implementations of these two protocols show that LAT can provide a significant performance advantage over TELNET.<>
