In principle I like the idea of SSH as much as others, but I have a
small problem: French cryptography law does not allow me to use SSH.
There are plans to change them, but as far as I know nothing has
happened yet.

On the other hand, I see no problem with restricting telnet and ftp
access to specific hosts; I can always go through my home machine
if necessary.
