Re: Anyone running MindTerm under Fedora?

I have never run it, but the scenario you mention is pretty scary, I
would never type any credentials of any kind into a {keylogger with a PC
wrapped around it} in an Internet cafe, let alone login ones.

Unless you are visiting a country where it just doesn't exist, you are
much more secure using ssh on your own device on someone else's wifi,
paying for the privilege as necessary.

If for some reason a laptop isn't possible, you can use ssh with those
little Nokia N770/N800 things which have wifi.
