comment Why can't you mount a windows share in linux and make it writable?
I've still not been given even a clue about what I can try... The password is encapsulated in (')s, so that isn't the issue, and smbfs or cifs; makes no difference.

That prompt is a program on the server called login, which is launched by a program called getty. It is not client side.

And I am not sure I am buying the argument that the name isn't sent. You can clearly see that logging into a linux system via SSH, when prompted for you password, you are identified as 'username@ip' OR 'username@name'... so CLEARLY SSH has some idea of how it was accessed.

@Chris S - I am not talking about running more than one service... I am talking about limiting the ways one can get to a service.

@DavidSchwartz that makes a lot more sense. The protocol itself. I had noticed that I can telnet to a web site on port 80 and get the same information as I can when I browse to it with a web browser... Thanks for that.

I guess I don't understand that... Does the router know to pass the name? Or does that happen at the DNS level? (I didn't think DNS knew about port)

Security is what I crave... but that is my point. The information is there, in the request... I just have a hard time believing there is no way I can get at it.

When traffic comes into the server on port 80, the daemon parses the request by name. You can have several domain names coming to the same IP address... Why can't SSH read this information?
