Die Hard 4: scp

Nmap, a network security scanning tool, has gotten quite a bit of fame in the shape of film appearances. Personally, I’ve seen Nmap a few times, but I have very often seen scp and ssh used. I could name the Bourne films, Die Hard 4 and The Matrix: Reloaded, for instance. When I re-watched Die Hard 4 today (on my computer), I suddenly remembered the RSA prompt I had seen fly by when I saw it in the cinema, and so hit enter the moment I saw it. I managed to grab some screen caps:

I thought “Hmm, that’s an IP”. You can see it quite clearly in the first screenshot— I ran a trace on this, and it came up as being on a Japanese domain, mail.osaka-itkaikei.ac.jp.

I visited the domain and, lo and behold, a Japanese website with no apparent relation to Die Hard 4 pops up. Len, what on earth is your point? Also, could anyone tell me what window manager Farrell is using?
