recently we’d had to outsource a configuration of a Cisco VPN setup, so we called a local computer company to help us out.

when they got here, first thing they tried to do was ping the FQDN we gave them. fine. it pinged, so it was up.

next step? they tried to Remote Desktop to it.

this is a Cisco VPN router we’re talking about … YOU CAN’T FUCKING REMOTE DESKTOP TO IT.

so, my next step is to tell them they can SSH into it. their question? “What’s SSH?”

holy tap dancing christ, you’ve got to be kidding me, right???
