ReverseMappingCheck and VerifyReverseMapping are deprecated[edit]

OpenSSH will moan if they're in sshd_config. They seem to be replaced by UseDNS, but does it do the same thing? If so, why don't the docs say so? Is the name change intended to clarify the risks involved or what? I've not been able to find much of use (just other people asking the same sort of questions) Mr. Jones 15:33, 17 Nov 2004 (UTC)

Estimating number of SSH users[edit]

Where does the estimate of 2 million users at the end of 2000 (in the history section) come from?

I found the following link which describes a study of the number of SSH servers: which indicates that maybe 5% of hosts ran SSH services at the end of their survey.

openssh supports also full VPN[edit]

  • openssh based vpn is a simple and quite good tcp based vpn. Really easy to set up, between unixes. More info is on man page and the key is to use -w and tun devices.
  • Any SSH implementation can do VPN by using PPP and attaching the SSH session to named pipes.
