Telnet Login & Password
Hello all. Thank you in advance for your help and I am sorry if this has been covered elsewhere. I would like to configure my telnet client to prompt for a login and password when logging in. If this has been covered please just direct me to the thread, if not if someone knows that would be excelent. Thanks!

RE: Telnet Login & Password
Hi all,

I have same question. I use telnetd installed with CSI. However no user & pw is prompted using telnet to my nmt. It automatically logs in with the 'root' user. How can I change this?

RE: Telnet Login & Password
I'd very much like to know that, too. I can change the password with 'passwd' but the telnetd itself doesn't even prompt for it.

I've also looked for info on about enabling that, but have found nothing.

If someone hacked into my wi-fi network and got into my NMT they could wipe it out completely. At least with the ftp server login there's a way to change the default password.

RE: Telnet Login & Password
Install dropbear/ssh, then disable telnet.
Or simply disable/kill telnet when you don't need it.

Audio, video, disco - I hear, I see, I learn.
