Telnet Disabled for ECN

Telnet and Rlogin have been disabled

    For security reasons, telnet has been disabled on all ECN machines. To access the machines you will need to use an SSH client. This will provide the same functionality as telnet, but will use encrypted communications instead of plain text communicating like telnet or rlogin. When you use telnet or rlogin, third parties have the ability to "eavesdrop" on your communications with the remote machine, collecting sensitive information like your login and password. SSH encrypts your communications so that eavesdroppers cannot read them.

There are a number of SSH clients available and your choice will depend mostly on the operating system from which you are connecting. You can find more information on using SSH from the ECN website at
