Description abm64239 1999-08-06 19:37:31 UTC
We have made the changes in /etc/securetty for remote root
logins and it doesn't seem to work.  This was working in 5.2
very well but since the upgrade to 6.0, this doesn't work
any longer.

Can you supply an example file? Thanks ...

Comment 2 Bill Nottingham 1999-08-19 19:37:59 UTC
telnet is probably using Unix98 ptys.

Add entries such as:
/dev/pts/1
/dev/pts/2

and it should work for you...
