I wish I had. You should have seen the firewall there. Wingate proxy
telnet server, God help us all.

I think I might have eventually got telnet-ssl going, though (since
Win98 telnet supports that).

Since starting this job, ditto. I'm contemplating upgrading my work box
to unstable to match home, but at the moment I'm slightly deterred by
the fact that it would be one of the very few glibc-2.2 boxen around and
thus binaries I compile there wouldn't run on most of the other
GNU/Linux systems.
