Re: Looking Glass Code

Hi Ariel

 If you really want to get paranoid - give the rsh privilege level 0 &
then you really get to specify exactly what IOS commands can be run by the
Looking Glass

P.S. AFAIK Cisco IOS SSH will only do telnet/rlogin type sessions - not
single commands - for the really paranoid set up the telnet/rsh connection
over encrypted IPSEC ;-)
