    I have upgraded to 1.29 and then 1.3. With each of these, when I try to use SSH remotely, it fails. If I am on the same physical network, everything works fine. Remotely, everything else, apart from Command Shell, works fine.

    When I run SSH, I get the login miniscreen. When I enter the username and password, the miniscreen disappears and focus is passed to the black SSH screen, which displays "online" in the bottom right. However, it won't let me write.

    My Java console displays:
    Applet: overriding value of Terminal.fontSize with 12
    Applet: overriding value of with
    Applet: overriding value of Terminal.resize with screen

    Any help on this will be much appreciated

      I have found the nasty cause of the problem :-))
      I want it to share with you.
      Ubuntu and some other distributions of Linux use SSH2
      The Telnet/SSH login applet use version SSH.
      The option to set the applet to use SSH2 does not work (bug?)
      The solution is to use the SSH2 applet.
      This is almost a perfect copy of the Telnet/SSH login applet. Looks the same (almost)
      You can install it within Webmin using add modules by URL
      Add this URL
      Install it
      You can remove the Telnet/SSH login safely
      Have Fun
