Please feel free to drop by and see what EMuck is like with our guest character access! We currently offer telnet access by connecting via telnet to game.emuck.com 6903. If your software cannot resolve that domain name, you might be able to connect using the IP address, which changes occasionally, but is currently 188.8.131.52.
There are better programs for accessing EMuck, such as a specially written MU* client for your platform. We have a list of MU* resources, including clients, available.
Finally, we have a web gateway that might be able to connect people that are stuck behind firewalls at work or at school (please find out your network administrators' policies of using a web proxy server in this fashion).
Once you connect using one of the methods described above, you should see our login screen, which varies a bit from time to time, but generally looks like this:
