yes, but even then ssh asks for a password, I've tried every authentication
method described in the ssh man page, but I couldn't get it to login without
manual authentication (with rsa keys it asks for the passphrase).  The other
thing I don't like about ssh is that it doesn't enforce the
/etc/login.access /etc/limits or the comment field in /etc/passwd (which
allows you to set the priority at which users processes run at)..  As I have
no real need to have my sessions encrypted, I see no advantage to using ssh
over telnet..
