What's port 22 for?
Authored by: derekhed on Aug 15, '05 11:25:53AM

This was the question our IT people asked me when I requested port 22 to be opened to my workstation. Frankly, I lost all respect for them at that point. They added a filter because some salesperson made it sound like the world would end if they didn't. Of course, they standardized on Dells, so they might have been right.

Don't see why I should have to suffer. I get more work done by bringing in my own laptop and using free software than I do on my Dell and a pretty liberal budget.

I am not advocating irresponsible behavior, but if the support folks don't know how to support you, roll your own.
