Hi,
What are the security implications of allowing a
server to be accessed from the Web using:

(a) Telnet (on a Linux machine): (password is sent in
clear text, may be captured by a potential hacker,
anyother risks?)

(b) FTP (default FTP service on a Linux machine)

(c) Terminal Services (win 2K server)

(d) VNC (win 2K server)

Thanks for ur help,
Rgds
