Telnet & FTP Being Phased Out

As announced two years ago, protocols that do not support encrypted passwords (e.g. telnet and ftp) are being phased out in favor of encrypted versions (ssh and sftp). See the network security software pages for information on suitable applications. Note that the network security pages will prompt you for network id and password.

Because so many people have not yet completed the conversion to the new protocols, the deadline for supporting the old protocols has been extended to January 2004. However, the sooner your make the switch, the more secure your work will be!
