You need a special client which does the encryption. Your telnet client only sends out plain text. Check out PuTTY: http://www.chiark.greenend.org.uk/~sgtatham/putty/

just out of curiosity what does SSH stand for...


"Mrs. Jones, I'm sorry to inform you, but we've run the tests, and it appears that you have XP. Now don't cry - it's bad, but it's not a death sentence. Modern science has advanced in recent years, and it's now possible to live a reasonably happy life with XP. And there's a survivor's group that you'll want to meet as well."

SSH (Secure Shell) is a program that connects to another computer on a network. Once connected you can execute commands in a remote machine. It provides strong authentication and secure communications over unsecure channels.
