Replace Telnet with OpenSSH

For those of you out there still living in the dark ages, and are still using Telnet because you haven't found a viable alternative (You know who you are). Maybe you haven't decided to switch to a more secure solution because you use Windows Servers and Windows hasn't adopted using SSH. Maybe you think SSH is only for Unix/Linux.

Well, your excuses are no longer good here. If you haven't heard about it, there is an OpenSSH port for Windows. Now you can still use a terminal remote access method, but you won't be sending your login credentials and important information across the wire in plain text.

OpenSSH provides full support for SSH/SCP/SFTP. So no more exuses, download OpenSSH and secure your servers.
