We need secure remote access to a few TCP servers running
on our FC1 host. These include pop3,imap,pserver(cvs) and
telnetd. The clients are both based on XP and FC1.
I think that SSH is perfect for that task but I first want
to be sure that it will run fine on FC1.
Do you want VPN or SSH connect? SSH of course works without problems on
Fedora, both as server as well as client. You can use SSH for tunneling
too, as a "lightweight" VPN.
But I would highly recommend that you switch off every telnet daemon!
And just use POP3S and IMAPS instead of the normal daemons without
SSL/TLS encryption. Actual clients on Windows[tm] and Linux do support
these secured services.
