so still use ssh?

after reading http://www.sans.org/top20/#U3, does it still make sense of using ssh with the presumption that it is more secure than telnet and etc...

SO, after all these security, whether telnet, ssh, we are still at the risk of not being secure, so what can we do?

Turn off your network interfaces Smilie

Seriously though, just don't take anything for granted - Do not assume you are secure just because you are using something like SSH, VPN, telnet, etc...

Getting back to getting an xterm on your machine - have you had any luck?
If you're on a Windows PC, you might try PuTTY - it masqurades as an xterm via telnet or ssh, so you can cut and paste via the mouse, view color text, and it's highly configurable...

To build an emulation terminal

just type:
i) man xterm
=> This is for normal UNIX system usage to build the emulation
from the terminal

ii) man hpterm
=> this is for HP UNIX sytem. It has its own UNIX terminal. I have tried to use before but I don't much different between xterm and hpterm.

***Sorry to call you to read at the help because I have not touch HP UNIX for 5 years. Now I am moving to LINUX Mandrake & SuSe.


Telnet also can be used; or other software. Since you are using HP - UNIX, you can use a software to telnet for terminal emulation

There is also a command, user friendly for HP UNIX;

type: tsm
(if I am not mistaken - it has a software that can emulate and execute from dump terminal - F1, F2, etc.)
