Re: Securing LAN Console On HP-UX Servers


Lan console is really security problem. I'm not sure you can resolve it 100%, but in order to decrease the danger:
1. Define a user/password for lan console access with a maximum of security features (SO).
2. Create a different subnet and manage an access to it by a firewall or by an access list in a router or don't define default router at all and connect only your computer to the subnet.
