Yea that's kinda crazy, especially considering the lisc. that OpenSSH is
available under. I've used the FSecure producs too back in the day, and it
seemed that there was some "value-added" features (read gui tools for low
level admins). Does SSH co. offer anything like this that a reasonably
experienced admin can't put together him/her self?
