Not true, do a google on telnet and see what you come up with - xinted will 
not allow more then 3 wrong answers. Besides, as I've pointed out, the 
webadmin is not a real user, the telnet client is. Ergo it is infinitely more 
dangerous then the webadmin client - I would rather have to reset the server 
then rebuild the entire box.
