In order to protect my employer, I must state that if you try anything that is described in this document, you do so at your own risk. In no way do I or anyone else at Ohio Wesleyan University offer any protection or guarantee as to the suitability of this document or its contents for any use whatsoever. Also, I am not connected in any way with The Kermit Project at Columbia University, other than the fact that I work at a school which has licensed and uses their excellent Kermit product.
If you have questions about anything described herein and how it worked or didn't work at Ohio Wesleyan, or if you have other feedback about this document (especially corrections to my mistakes), I welcome hearing from you at <firstname.lastname@example.org>.
I was assigned the job of finding a way of encrypting the telnet traffic between campus staff, who were using Kermit for a telnet client, and our administrative database server, an IBM RS/6000 model F50 running AIX 4.3.
