How can I configure my Telnet to run thru SSL.

1. what should I download ?
2  what should I install ?

Is there another way of remote administering of my server instead of Telnet?

my test os is redhat 6.2
I will install it on a Cobalt RAQ4 server.

use SSH instead.. it provides an "encrpyted" telnet session and system admins are strongly encouraged to use SSH instead of Telnet which is clear text.

A free open-source version can be found at:
http://www.openssh.org

The latest OpenSSH package for Red Hat can be found at:
http://www.redhat.com/support/errata/RHSA-2001-041.html

An basic tutorial on how to install OpenSSH on Red Hat can be found at:

Yes, there is an ssh client & server available from RedHAT, but they are only furnished for 7.0 and later. It isn't too much of a problem to get OpenSSH running on a 6.2 system, but you'll have the most success if all of the applicable RedHat 6.2 updates have been applied. I can furnish, on request by email to jim@entrophy-free.net, a spiffy script that takes most of the pain out out the update process. With the system current, OpenSSL 9.5a will be there and you can download the OpenSSH sources from http://www.openssh.org, unpack them and configure/build/install ssh. I just did that this weekend to a couple of RAQ's and had no problems with getting ssh running.

Looks like nothing is going to happening here. I'd say to give the points to Haho.
