"Shell server" seems to be a common term on the net,
but it's probably a bit of a misnomer. I think it
means that you get a login shell rather than ftp only.
Which is nice to have. does allow
shell logins, some ISP's do not. I'll check panix.

I have looked through the "sites running NetBSD" page,
but it's not ISP (or "shell server") specific which is
kinda what I was looking for. Maybe I'll do a bit of
research and make one myself...
Wore your "This brain runs on NetBSD" T-shirt to the
world series game on Sunday. Got some thumbs ups on
it. Sorry you wasabi systems Yanks, but the
Diamondbacks are gonna take it!
