Twyl, JimL | The ssh server should optimally generate new keys every so often (every few hours?) This generally takes a lot of CPU time, and on a 2501 it would probably take quite a while!!! Also, the ssh server requires more memory then a telnet server. This is a problem for older routers. While I'm at it, I believe Cisco is/will be using the OpenSSH code for newer implementations of ssh under IOS. --- Reverend Chris Cappuccio http://www.dqc.org/~chris/
