Ssh is an add-on option from eXceed. Worked nice for us back when, but I'm
mostly using PuTTY at $dayjob these days, don't need much X based apps.

rsh and rexec must die. rsh and rexec should be scary even if THESE users
are VPN tunneled, as then you have to be very careful to prevent rsh+ from
accepting connxns from non-VPN. ever. easiest is uninstall ...
