Re: Permit root login for telnet..



Why take a chance with telnet when you don't have to?

 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.

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 .



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.
