So what do you do when you're at a conference, your laptop has been stolen and the cell phone rings? If you were using ssh for secure access then the answer would be to find a machine with a web browser, go to http://www.datafellows.com and download the 30-day free trial version of the Windows or Mac ssh client as appropriate, and, voila!, you have secure access to your network. But, alas, if you are using a Cisco router, you cannot get in directly but must instead use a UNIX host as a proxy, either to get access to a backdoor network or to get to a Kerberized telnet client. It would be nicer if Cisco would support sshd but I suppose that would make the PCMCIA flash cards into munitions that are illegal to export... -- Michael Dillon - Internet & ISP Consulting Memra Communications Inc. - E-mail: [email protected] http://www.memra.com - *check out the new name & new website*
