RE: Permit root login for telnet..



OK , no one has access to network room here than Coms guys . Even I
cannot go in as I am in Unix/Storages group. Our comm. guys are not
interested in checking our passwords.

Also they have access to most of the prod switches, so they are trusted
by the business. Again not a risk .

Sure, just turn on ethereal, plug into the span port on the switch.
Very straight forward; there are even software based packet sniffers
than can sniff past switches.

Again that's all good . But, can you tell me how to see password of
other sysadmin if he is accessing system via telnet?

Telnet is also vulnerable to man in the middle attacks and ssh offers
post authentication; telnet does not.

Telent is a clear text protocol; ssh isn't.

I have used telnet before ssh came in to the market . Do you know how to
hack telnet ? or break a root password without having physical access to
the system ? most likely the answer will be - NO .. so what's the big
deal in ssh vs. telnet ?

Dear Arun,

You do NOT want to enable root login via telnet - trust me on this
one. Please tell the list what you are trying to accomplish - 99.9%
chance is that whatever you are trying to do can, and should be done
via ssh.

Kind Regards,
