Description jhdceltic 2000-01-13 21:15:18 UTC
I am attempting to login as a remote user from a PC (WindowsNT) viaTCP/IP.
I get the login banner from the RedHat linux server asking for userid and
password. I input root/pebbles94 which are valid from the console but are
rejected at the emulator. The log file shows the message "Login failed 1
from for root, authentication failure. Can you tell me what
I missed in the configuration.?

Thank you,
Jim Dugan

You are using telnet, where, as a security feature, root login's are
not permitted because you are logging in from the network. Try adding a user,
and login as that user. Then, if you need root access, try doing
"su -".
