Description loris.renggli 1999-06-23 13:12:30 UTC
Including or not a "pam_nologin" stanza in /etc/pam.d/rlogin
has no effect: rlogin will succeed (provided of course
proper entries in $HOME/.rhosts file) even if the file
/etc/nologin exists.

This issue has been forwarded to a developer for further action.

depends where you put that pam_nologin module and how you configure
it. You need to put the pam_nologin module before pam_rhosts one.
This works on my system:
auth       required     /lib/security/pam_securetty.so
auth       required     /lib/security/pam_nologin.so
auth       sufficient   /lib/security/pam_rhosts_auth.so
auth       required     /lib/security/pam_pwdb.so shadow nullok
account    required     /lib/security/pam_pwdb.so
password   required     /lib/security/pam_cracklib.so
password   required     /lib/security/pam_pwdb.so shadow nullok
session    required     /lib/security/pam_pwdb.so
