Now I understand your problem. You have to ways to go:
The telnet-server now will prompt you for login/password
> tlntadmn stop
> tlntadmn config sec=-NTLM+passwd
> tlntadmn start
Second, you create by hand the TelnetClients group and add users to it (follow ).
Then, you change the local policies according to. You reenable NTLM (+NTLM).
Hopefully, this will work.
I would go with the first approach. But remember, that telnet is mainly a tool
for educative purposes.
How to add a restricted user? Did I confuse you by my bad choice of words? I meant
a limited user. See .
If the only tool you have is a hammer, you tend to see every problem as a nail.

Thanks gang. I have enough information to keep me busy for a while. It's a matter of more reading. I appreciate the links and your help.

On XP, probably on W2K too, there's a policy that prevents users from logging in remotely if there's no password set for that account.
I ran into this when I tried to use RDP from my fbsd box to my XP laptop. And yes, I know....passwords...

Figured that out the hard way. I guess I should get using passwords anyways.
