Re: Security in a shell that starts ssh
Well, in my case the terminal is an VT-100, so it's connected directly to
the one of the serial ports of the server, so nothing's going wildly to the
network in cleartext.
I don't know about Xterminals, though... I guess they are networked, but I
really don't know much about the protocol :(
And changing topic, how about that code-revieu debian list? It sure sounds
interesting, and many of us would learn a great deal :) Debian gurus out
there, let's give it a shot! Where/who can we contact?
