    log on/log in

    Hey guys, I have another question. What's the difference between log in and log on?! Which of the 2 is appropriate?!

    a.) You are logged in as RL.
    b.) You are logged on as RL.

    I think both are often used but I'm pretty sure one of them is wrong.

    Thanks! :)

    I think "log in" means connection with the server and "log on" means you put in your name and pass word and enter.

    Hope teachers give us better explanatin.

    I've always used them interchangeably.

    I don't see any real difference between them- I think it's a matter of personal preference.
