We plan to turn off telnet access to giraffe on Mar 1 of this year.  If you currently use telnet please download the ssh client from the CIT software archive and start using it.   Where ever possible ftp access should also be converted to using the ssh counterpart. We would like to turn off ftp access from all but a few clients by July 1 of this year.

Let me know if you have questions.
