[?] Telnet vs. SSH

Telnet is a way how to remotely control something. This sounds great, but you should know telnet has been developed in the 1960’s and it is unencrypted. So everyone with e.g. Wireshark can read your username & password combo. The more secure way how to access your devices over the net is using SSH, which is significantly more secure.

//Just use this code

//To configure SSH properly

To connect use ssh -l username destination-IP
