someone in my company wrote 2 applications called pftp and ptelnet that
use the application proxy to establish a secure FTP or telnet connection
in one step. just type 'ptelnet domain.com' and you'll telnet thru the
proxy. it's been ported by others for use on unixware, solaris, linux (i
think) and others. if int. i can try and get the source code, or if it's
proprietary at least some further information. much easier than doing 2
steps and no one has to be given a login to the proxy.
i just use them, anyone else doing this or have any info/opinions?
