Journal rdewald's Journal: SSh Zen 1

I was doing some security auditing on a laptop I just DMZ'd on my home router. It has a hardened Debian sarge install and I wanted to check the smtp deamon and the Secure Shell login, which I redirect to a high port.

I was already logged on to the shell of my hosting provider on the west coast somewhere at another laptop on my desk, so I just used ssh from that command line to login to this laptop, right here next to me on my desk.

No root is good.
Terminal pleases.
Traceroute is like falling water.
So, 'shutdown -h now'

I turned off a computer, six inches from my left hand, from a remote connection to another computer that is 3000+ miles away.

Do the birds fly the tree?
