Modifying the TELNET service.

I want to add the  "LOG_OPTION=ADDRESS"  to my TELNET service, (so that TT_ACCPORNAM includes the IP address, and not the hostname).


When I execute the command


TCPIP> set service TELNET /Log_Opt=address


The command is accepted (i.e. no errors), however show service/full does not show the option added!!


Do I have to cycle telnet to make this happen??

Re: Modifying the TELNET service.



to change an option of the TELNET service, you have to disable and re-enable the service. This will cause all existing TELNET sessions to be disconnected.
