Re: Is anyone actually USING IP QoS?
For 99.9% percents of networks, SSH/SLOGIN at the cisco (in conjuction with S/KEI or simular if you want extra protection) is enougph for the routers. May be, ssh have some security problems, but I hardly imagine where they can be important except some bank system when intruder can get 100,000$ at once in case of success. On the other hand, for now, 99% or routers over the world are configured withouth any security except simple access lists and simple multi-used passwords. Just because something though _ssh is not enougph and is not nessesary at all_. As usial - you should start from the small steps (ssh) and then go to the big ones (IPSEC) if nessesary, not vice versa.
