Telnet vs SSH

Labels: , ,

ssh stands for Secure Shell and telnet is only kept around for old network appliances and routers.ssh has compression so over slow links it better than telnet.ssh allows tunneling of X, again compressed, which makes remote X faster and secure.Also nautilus supports ssh as a remote transport which makes for a very useful option for remote file browsing.Telnet is insecure.Both Telnet and SSH were almost similar protocols.Telnet transmitted all information as plain text, including sensitive information like passwords etc.SSH uses a very strong cryptography mechanism to shield the connection from possible hijackers and eavesdroppers.
