On the subject of Opie, I am a big opie fan as well. It works well.
Users of opie should be aware, however, that at least on some
platforms it (opie 2.31) does not properly protect r-based services
like rsh and rlogin. But as one of the part authors of
OPIE said in an email conversation with me,
"I never, ever, ever run rlogin on any of my machines,"
amd perhaps most security-minded individuals agree, so this may not
be a big issue. But I thought it certainly warrants mention.
