two different application protocol. ssh uses

port 22 while ssl uses port 443. They both

accomplish the same thing even though ssh

is capable of supporting AES-256 encryption.

Not sure if SSL is capable of doing that.

yes and much much more. You can tunnel

other protocol/applications inside the SSH

tunnel. telnet can not do that.
