From The Jargon File (version 4.4.7, 29 Dec 2003) :

      1. n. [common] One file transmission in a series required to get a file
      from point A to point B on a store-and-forward network. On such networks
      (including the old UUCP network and and FidoNet), an important
      inter-machine metric is the number of hops in the shortest path between
      them, which can be more significant than their geographical separation. See
      bang path.
      2. v. [rare] To log in to a remote machine, esp. via rlogin or telnet. ?
      I'll hop over to foovax to FTP that.?

From The Free On-line Dictionary of Computing (30 December 2018) :

     1.  One point-to-point transmission in a series
     required to get a message from point A to point B on a store
     and forward network.  On such networks (including UUCPNET
     and FidoNet), an important inter-machine metric is the hop
     count of the shortest path between them.  This can be more
     significant than their geographical separation.
     Each exclamation mark in a bang path represents one hop.
     2.  One direct host-to-host connection forming
     part of the route between two hosts in a routed network
     such as the Internet.  Some protocols place an upper limit
     on the hop count in order to detect routing loops.
     3.  To log in to a remote computer,
     especially via rlogin or telnet.  "I'll hop over to foovax
     to FTP that."
