    Hello All,
    I would like to enable root login access to telnet on Fedora Core 6.
    I am able to telnet to using a normal user, but not as a root user.
    1) making changes to /etc/securetty with adding pts/0, pts/1 etc did
    not help.
    2) Removing the /etc/securetty file did not help.
    3) Commenting out the auth entries in /etc/pam.d/login did not help.
    4) If I disable krb5-telnet and install telnet-server rpm, the telnet
    as root works on local system but a remote putty access is not

    My requirement is: I would like to login as root when telnet to my
    remote Fedora Core6.

    "Yes, I know. telnet is insecure, but this experiment is completely
    inhouse and I _want_ to use telnet only"

    Thanks in advance.

    Maybe it's because what you want to do is a very bad idea, and no one
    wants to help you implement a bad idea.
