Re: telnet vs ssh on Core equipment , looking for reasons why ?
true, but i would point out that if its your core equipment that you are accessing from your network that sits directly on the core then you should be happy with the fact that no one is eavesdropping and it makes no difference. having said that, i use ssh where i can. i like RSA rather than passwords as its so much more difficult for people to login as you, thats not ssh specific tho, thats just an alternative authentication scheme that just happens to ship with most ssh. so thats my main logic, authentication... i cant understand the big paranoia on people sniffing tho!
