I have the freely-redistributable version of that code, from Norway
(btw), maybe you confuse Norway/PGP with FInland/ssh?
Anyway, the copyright, apparently also from the scanned version of that
book, is very explicit about non-commercial use, with a version that I
fear that I may not look at the source during my working hours at
university. After all, I make my income by reviewing and testing
software packages for the CS departments' use --- its part of my work
I asked PGP Inc. to clarify this, and some even more paranoid fears of
mine, but they didnt answer my fax yet.
