It's not recommended. At all. It's highly insecure. If you're still determined to do it, though: You will need to add the keyword 'secure' to the end of the lines in /etc/ttys that look like ttypN (where N is a number). Again, you really should be using SSH instead of telnet if you value your system at all. --roop _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
