( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

And if the OP wanted to copy files between two interconnected hosts without a connection to any other machine, not even a coffee-maker:
do not suggest the usage of rsh, rcp, remote-without-encrypted-ssl-or-ssh-tool-of-your-choice to anybody, because if they get used to these, they may use them without thinking in circumstances where they don't want to.

Use ssh, scp, rsync -e ssh, CVS_RSH=ssh, ...for whatever intermachine communication involving authentication you have, just to get used to it and do it automatically when it's important.

I know this is kind of over-zealous, but it's like driving drunk: I don't care about the mischief of a drunken driver (as long as we're not befriended :-), but I care for the poeple dying in an accident because of the driver being drunk.
I don't care for machines taken over because there admins not performing well enough to protect there machines reasonably, but the machines DoSed from this machine (and a lot of others) could be mine, and I don't like that!

I hope I could make my point without turning into a complete a#@hole; just remember that I'm not a native english-speaker, and to use encrypted connections!

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
