What debian version do you use? If you using potato, I will advice yiou
to upgrade to woody.

In woody, there is ssh 3.0.2p1-9 included:
ii ssh 3.0.2p1-9 Secure rlogin/rsh/rcp replacement (OpenSSH).

You can install ssh with apt-get, the famous tool to install packages in
debian :)

Type "apt-get install ssh", and you will install OpenSSH ....

I use key-auth As authentification method for ssh, IMHO the most secure
method with disabling the password authentification.


One time, you all will be emulated by linux!
