  • tellnet vs ssh?

    My host has disabled tellnet and allows only ssh, Now will I be able to type the same commands into ssh, as I could into tellnet, for backing up my forum and restoring it?

    Its exactly the same except ssh encryts the password.

    And ssh is different port.

        System Reference Manual
        NAME
        telnet - user interface to the TELNET protocol

        DESCRIPTION
        The telnet command is used to communicate with another host using the
        TELNET protocol. If telnet is invoked without the host argument, it enĀ­
        ters command mode, indicated by its prompt (telnet>). In this mode, it
        accepts and executes the commands listed below. If it is invoked with
        arguments, it performs an open command with those arguments.


        System Reference Manual
        NAME
        ssh - OpenSSH SSH client (remote login program)

        DESCRIPTION
        ssh (SSH client) is a program for logging into a remote machine and for
        executing commands on a remote machine. It is intended to replace rlogin
        and rsh, and provide secure encrypted communications between two untrustĀ­
        ed hosts over an insecure network. X11 connections and arbitrary TCP/IP
        ports can also be forwarded over the secure channel.

          yeah, I haven't had the pleasure of using SSH yet, but the more secure something is, the better

                Not entirely true, everything on SSH is encrypted, not just the password... This would reduce the chance of other commands being sniffed that could also contain your password(s).....
