May be I am an incurable romantic from the old times that likes "telnet", sendmail, finger... daytime... bsd lpr.... and never give up from BSD, I use it since 1.0 release... I agree that ssh is better, etc... etc... but I still use sendmail and telnet... Once I setted up a mailserver with more that 2000 users with a single freebsd sendmail in a small machine (1Ghz,512Mb memory, Freebsd 4.X) one internet connection.. with virtual users, mailertable... and it worked for years... by the way... it had telnetd avaiable... Welll.... Have anyone yet "cracked" the telnet enable machine whose IP was published in the list? I remember some time ago a machine named "Coen....." who challenged anynone crack it... she published the address, the login and the password... and in addition, she said there were a "bug" in the system... Well.... if I remember, the machine stayed alive for several months with all the hackers, crackers, and xxxckers.... hitting it... It was FreeBSD 5.X series....
