When I add people to /etc/security/access.conf to prevent them from loging 
on with telnet or SSH it's now working... I mean no changes to loging 

I put the line


and it didn't make any change.

cybertgp is still allowed to logon in telnet... :)

BTW, is there anyway to allow him to login via FTP and not Telnet nor SSH?

I should prevent anyone from login with cybertgp accounts, but it doesn't

The default PAM configuration as shipped does not make use of pam_access.  If
you wish to use its facilities, you'll need to add this line to the appropriate
control file in /etc/pam.d:
account	required	/lib/security/pam_access.so
It should work then.
