RE: Permit root login for telnet..



>>>until someone broke 

 So there are unix guys who are better than Unix admins in your shop ?
or was it programmer ?  You can easily trace that out -who logged in by
IP -DHCP etc.. we do it all the time .. 
If someone here even logs into co-workers machine without his permission
that's against company policy - HR disciplinary action - gets fired.

That's what some of us here thought too... until someone broke in to one
of our 
computers, put the network card in promiscuous mode, started a password
sniffer, 
and then got the root passwords for dozens of boxes.
