Sorry for the delay in getting back to you, but I just got back to working on 
NT problems.

Problem: when I login to my NT4.0 server, using VanDyke's SecureCRT4.0 and 
SSH2, I get the usual screen. All seems well. Now I connect to the Oracle 
component using SQLPlus*:

sqlplus system at DBname

When the password prompt appears:

Enter password:

I type in the password and viola!!! the password appears on the screen!

I try to use a password file (sort of like an .INI file) and the password again 
shows up on the screen. Needless to say, this compromises my security a tad ;-}

What I need is:

1) a fix
2) an explanation or
3) a way of using SQLPlus* for Oracle with SSH2

I don't know how else to explain this problem.

I appreciate your help

Oracle DBA
