Install the secure shell daemon, (mostly at port 22) and also get a secure shell client for the people who need to telnet in.
There are freeware versions for windows, but I was not happy with them, the package from f-secure is better.

You might consider installing SSLtelnet and SSLeay library.  It would allow you to use two  UNIX boxies with it installed to make a Secured Sockets Library connection between the
two boxies.  This starts even before you login. 512bit temporary key is generated.  Another nice thing is TeraTerm SSL in Japan.  It works under 95 and NT and provides me with a Windows client that supports the Secured connection. Remember no connection is 100% secure but this is much better than logging in with clear text password and ID.
www.replay.com/redhat has rpms for securing.  
http://www.infoscience.co.jp/eng/products/ssltterm/     has free download of SSLteraTerm.

Have fun and please work to secure your site.

The places I checked don't have SSLtelnet for Unix, only Windows. Where else can I look.

Thanks

www.reply.com/redhat has the SSLtelnet for Unix.  Get it there or goto
www.psy.uq.edu.au:8080/~ftp/Crypto/   It might be in a different dir...  Check above it not there.  Rob
