with sshd and rshd it can be set, with telnetd - no success.

once again - can someone answer my question instead of giving very "intelligent" comments?
If I remember correctly, you edit /etc/ttys and set some of your ttyp* (i.e. network ptys) to be 'SECURE'. It really isn't a good idea though. The reason I don't remember is that I haven't done it in about 10 years.

If it's a remote program that needs root access, you can probably do something with ssh - you can allow ssh RootLogin, but not with passwords only public key auth, and you can *also* limit the key to be allowed to only connect from certain addresses and only run specific commands (e.g. some backup software works this way). You can have multiple keys with different restrictions even - Host A can run rsync only, and host B can run rdiff-backup only.
