The /etc/security/access.conf file says that it will restrict access 
(login).  However, when you try something like this:


which should deny access to all except for account jason (connection from 
all - console & remote) locations.  This does not work.  Despite the 
above, other users are able to log in without problem.

Does your /etc/pam.d/login file include the line:
account  required       /lib/security/pam_access.so
Comment 2 jason 2000-07-03 09:51:17 EDT
That's it!

By default installation /etc/pam.d/login file does not include the line:
account  required       /lib/security/pam_access.so

Where is this documented?  I looked everywhere.  I recommend that RH put this 
in by default if you are going to keep the /etc/security directory.  Or, put 
this required information in the header of the /etc/security/access file.

Thanks for the help.
