Re: ssh, not telnet (was Re: Give me my econ-gnome-ical text mode back!)
To Whom It May Concern,
On my compnay's website we have a good SSH Client for Winblows. It is
linked on the frontpage of our site. The website is www.cia-g.com/ I also
highly recommend using SSH over Telnet. Telnet is to vunerable to outside
attacks. If at all possible close Port 23 off from the outside. As Karsten
said remove Telnet all together. When I installed Debian 2.2.17, I removed
telnetd and all references to Telnet, and installed The SSHD from deselect.
Security is THE main goal in keeping files safe and your home network
secure. I am a small network admin for my employers. And I noticed telnet
being used to access our computers, so I told my Mentor to remove Telnet all
together he did and no more DoS Attacks.
