I need a more secure replacement for telnet, SCH? How?

Hi all,

With my extremelly little knoledge on linux, I am installing debian linux with a samba server, it is already working but need to access it remotely, (within our LAN).

What replacement could I have for telnet?, is SCH good?

How do I set it up, I don't think it is in the harddrive at all.

in other words where do I start?

ssh is your choice along with maybe scp.

To just connect, use

$ ssh -l (username) (their IP address)

To copy files securely, use

$ scp -p -r (filename) (username)@(ip address):/(directory)
