Re: Telnet

You don't have to rename the securettys file, instead you must add to the end of the file:

ptys

Anyway, is better if you don't allow direct root access, even better if you don't use telnet, but SSH.
Por que hacerlo dificil si es posible hacerlo facil? - Why do it the hard way, when you can do it the easy way?
