Title: RE: telnet vs ssh on Core equipment , looking for reasons why ?

Actually, we do this now for our VPN users. Cisco Secure ACS 2.6 for NT
proxies authentication requests to an ACE/Server 5.0 (works with 4.1 as
well). Fairly stright forward to set up. I believe you can get evals of both
products. Both servers have replication partners for redundancy and sit in a
firewall DMZ. VPN users must log into a VPN web site using their tokens to
obtain the VPN client.

Gonna try this with our routers RSN.

I've been thinking of doing precisely this...  Any pointers to info on
something like this?  I haven't researched it much yet (busy with IDS
atm).

Thanks,
