Telnet communication is highly insecure as all data is transmitted without proper encryption. Therefor telnet is now obsolet and has been succeeded by the secure shell ssh.

Sure, so is rlogin. But I use rlogin all the time at work, since that is within a intranet whose boundaries to the outside network are secured. It doesn't make any sense to require people to type in passwords all the time as ssh does, for day to day work (except of course if that work involves passing data over the Internet, versus an intranet).

For rlogin use in the intranet, I use a .rhosts file that doesn't require a password prompt each time. For Intranet work, ssh is your friend.

If you are really very impressed with not typing in passwords all the time.. ssh gives you the same opportunity with publickey authentication.:-). once you configure that on your server with saving your public key on server.. you are done... I bet you will never be asked to enter a password..

Cheers!!

You can never be 100% sure that your boundaries are 100% secure. Ditto trusting other users or machines on the network.
Please use ssh with passwd or public key...

Ok, sounds like a good idea. Ummm, do you have to enable that on every system in a network of systems?
