SSH?

Hello,

I have been playing Nethack on NAO for a long time, but this is my first time on the forum, so forgive me if this is a topic that has been discussed before. Is there any chance we could play Nethack using SSH instead of Telnet? It's not because of any paranoid reason, but simply because, for years now, there is no Symbian telnet client - only SSH (PuTTy, which in its Symbian version, has no telnet). So everyone who has a Nokia phone with a nice keyboard and would like to spend his time hacking on a bus os train, cannot. I know some people who use SSH to access a machine and telnet from there to NAO, but couldn't we simply allow SSH connections for playing the game?

Thanks,

Flavio

I've avoided ssh for awhile now because there is no real security reason for it (on NAO at least), but if ssh is default on more mobile devices and telnet isn't, that's a real argument for the sake of convenience.

I'll play around with this later.
