* These services have been largely or completely removed from the Internet and/or from the market. Security methods such as SSL and Kerberos are of little or no use now since there are few if any secure Telnet or FTP servers in operation. C-Kermit for Unix makes SSH connections through the Unix SSH client. C-Kermit 10.0 for Windows includes an up-to-date built-in SSH client that works with modern SSH servers. It also has SSL-secured Telnet and FTP clients if you can find a server for them!
