"SSH - Secure SHell, is a replacement for common insecure remote access programs, telnet, rsh etc... With ssh everything you do remotely is encrypted and secure. With telnet, and other programs of the like, your passwords go through the internet in *plain text!* can you believe that? Who would want to use a program that sends your passwords and everything you type to the remote host in plain text? Not I."
"Ok well this guide will cover the installation and setup of SSH 1.2.27. First off, as always, we need to get the source code. The source code is available from many places, I will list a few."
