A 'box' refers to a computer, as in a Unix box, a Linux box, an NT box, etc.
I didn't see the original email, but it might be possible to do what he
describes if you have a shell account(telnet access to a command line(which
is like a DOS prompt) unix based interface).

Hope this helps,

I know you had to lie to me,
I know you had to cheat.
You learned it on your father's knee
And at your mother's feet.
But did you have to fight your way
Across the burning street
When all our vital interests lay
A thousand kisses deep.
- Leonard Cohen
