I don't know Tip; do you mean tip?  To find out what a program is used
for, read the manual:

  $ man tip
  TIP(1)                  FreeBSD General Commands Manual                 TIP(1)
       tip - connect to a remote system
       tip [-v] -speed system-name
       tip [-v] -speed phone-number
       The tip command establishes a full-duplex connection to another machine,
       giving the appearance of being logged in directly on the remote cpu.  It
       goes without saying that you must have a login on the machine (or equiva-
       lent) to which you wish to connect.
