If you are using passthru you are either using dialup or APPC over TCP.
If you are using dial up, that is private, and if they call you and don't
allow their modem to answer that is pretty secure.
If you are using APPC over TCP someone has already done extensive work
between the systems. The controllers must match to connect.
If you are using telnet that is different and authentication using the
digital certificate is the way to go. Your session is encrypted.
