Ooops! Of course...
But, wait a minute, which is server and which is client?
You can telnet OUT of a Win box, but you can't telnet IN.
Same with ssh; what good would that do?
It doesn't meet my need for safety to connect a naked Win box to th
Internet anyway. I have a 486 Linux box for that. I can ssh to
it, and from there reach Linux boxes on th internal LAN -- and from
one of those VNC to th Win boxes...
Easier and better for me than try for an ssh server/client on Windows...

Yep. It's what makes Windows *useable* for me.
Wish it would just run from the DOS prompt tho. ;)
