    Does anybody know where I can download a free telnet application for my Treo 600 that will allow me command line access to my Unix servers? Mocha was a no go. Any help would be great.

    First, telnet is completely insecure and I can't believe anyone still uses it.

    There are at least two free ssh clients that run just fine on treos:

    TuSSH: http://www.tussh.com/

    pssh: http://www.sealiesoftware.com/pssh/

    I use TGssh and pssh

    pssh as above. Both work nicely to connect to my servers.

    pssh and TuSSH both give you free telnet clients with SSH encryption. Google them to find a download site. Both work well with Treo 600..

    No, I don't VPN if I use a webserver. If it is a server without a public IP then I guess you must VPN into the network.

    Using pssh or TuSSH you just set up the parameters; if the server supports ssh1 or ssh2, you are in business and your transmissions are encrypted. The software needs to know the address of the server, the port (usually the standard), etc.
    Very easy to use and set up.

    do a search for mocha telnet. ssh is a waste if you are only doing basic admin. set with telnet "it's faster"

    If you are doing basic admin with telnet instead of ssh you should read more about network security... (imho)

    Exactly. Telnet is bad.

    I just don't like it when people ask how to get "A" working, and most of the responses are "forget A, go with option B!" If that was me asking I'd be kinda disappointed.

    Personally I use both SSH AND Telnet. Why? Because I log into a BBS that ONLY supports Telnet... I don't even have the option of using SSH, and sometimes thats just life. Frankly it's for recreational use and I don't care much if someone hacks my account on it anyways. I do use SSH for administration, but to answer the original poster the only decent Telnet app I found was Mocha... not free but it works fine for what I use it for.

    K sorry I'm done now ranting...

    I use it at work. I have a Bluetooth adapter on my PC which I've turned in to a bluetooth network access point. I use 'reverse DUN' to connect to this network access point just like it's a wifi access point. My PC shares the network access with the bluetooth adapter so I get access to our entire network.
    This, of course, only works within 100 meters of my PC, but allows me to telnet in to linux boxes from anywhere on the floor of my building.

    From outside, I'd have to use VPN. Unfortunately they closed down the PDA VPN gateway
