    Hi soma56

    Now I understand your problem. You have to ways to go:
    First,
    Code:
    > tlntadmn stop
    > tlntadmn config sec=-NTLM+passwd
    > tlntadmn start
    The telnet-server now will prompt you for login/password

    Second, you create by hand the TelnetClients group and add users to it (follow [1]).
    Then, you change the local policies according to[2]. 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 [3].

    Cheers.

    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.
