Persoanlly, if it was my shekk account I would always usse ssh, which gives me 
a strongly encrypted connection to make life easy for cracekrs sniffing the 
connection. I actually have some shell access at my IAP but then I am not an 
"average" user. (ssh 1.2.x is free for most use, ssh 2.x is much more 
commercial and less widely used).

As for shell script eveyrthing you see in shell scripts works fine on the 
comand line (just possibly modulo goto). I actually use minor shell scripting 
on the command line. You almost crtaintly can use shell scripts and I doublt 
anyone minfs you using them (given shell access you can do anything a shell 
script can).

I know the above suprises quite a few people :-)
