Connecting to local linuxbox 17 Years, 10 Months ago  
Gents,
I have a tiny 3 machine local network and would like to use AT from the winbox to the 2 linuxboxes.
Could you please provide me with an example on how to connect to 192.168.1.8 ?
Thanks.

Bjarne,

Your average vanilla Linux setup will have the telnet protocol completely disabled by default. It is considered to be very unsafe, passing password and session data in the clear without any protection. SSH1 is considered a viable alternative, while SSH2 would be an even better choice for secure communication across an insecure network.

Now, if your network consists entirely of your three machines, then security is not of particular concern to you. You can enable telnet on your machine if you want or just remain with SSH as you probably won't be able to tell a difference.

For sure I can tell the difference: SSH1 works - Telnet don't ! :)
Thanks anyway.
