    1) Archie
    2) Gopher
    Archie, Gopher, Veronica and Jughead are three standard “finding” tools on the Internet. The Archie database is made up of the file directories from hundreds of systems. When you search this database on the basis of a file’s name, Archie can tell you which directory paths on which systems hold a copy of the file you want.
    A Gopher is a menu system that simplifies locating and using Internet resources. Each Gopher menu at each Gopher site is unique. Gopher menus usually include the other familiar features of the Internet. You can use a Gopher to Telnet to a location or to FTP a file or to do just about anything else–as long as that option is listed on the Gopher menu.

    1. Archie is a tool for indexing FTP archives, allowing people to find specific files. It is considered to be the first Internet search engine.

    2.Gopher is a distributed document search and retrieval network protocol designed for the Internet. Its goal is to function as an improved form of Anonymous FTP, enhanced with hyperlinking features similar to that of the World Wide Web.

    Servers known as Jughead and Veronica(also characters in Archie comics) use the Gopher protocol

    The connect : The name Archie acted as the inspiration for the names of Jughead and Veronica, both search systems for the Gopher protocol, named after other characters from the same comics.

    Veronica and Jughead, the search systems on Gopher are named as an oblique reference to Archie, an FTP indexing tool, widely considered the first ever search engine on the Internet.

    Archie from Archie comics and Gopher in the second pic.
    connect should be Jughead and Veronica.
    Archie is the search engine for finding FTP files which served as the inspiration for Jughead and Veronica both search engines for Gopher protocol,named after Jughead Jones and Veronica Lodge of the Archie comics.
    Jughead is an acronym for \’Jonzy\’s Universal Gopher Hierarchy Excavation And Display\’.
