Your question is nonsensical. An internet connection is an Internet
connection. What you run over it is up to you.

Whereas I doubt a '70s mini will have a text-mode browser such as
Lynx, Links or W3M, many will have TCP/IP. Just telnet to a Linux box
and run one of those, or something akin.

WWW work. You need to learn that first before you can do this. It's
not very hard or super-complex.
