[xfbb] Password questions
Tue, 13 Nov 2001 22:11:55 +0100 (CET)
I'm getting stuck to find a solution that could grant me both
access security and easy forwardings.
Until today I used my XFBB without paying too much attention to CON_FILT.PSW
and I configured it as "Read-only","MD2","CALL","FLAG=0" also for my own
This allows anyone using my call to access my system with sysop privileges,
and I won't it happens.
Having configured a local telnet forward on same XFBB's machine with JNOS,
I have the problem that if I change the CON_FILT.PSW rules on this way:
IK5BCU 1 <password>
then I can't get connection since JNOS (seems) doesn't recognizes the MD2
1)"Why have I to repeat MD2 style password during TELNET ACCESS if I've already
input it on clear ?"
2)"Have I to write my own password into /etc/ax25/fbb/passwd.sys ?"
3)"What solutions exist to avoid risk of intrusion and allow telnet
P.S.:If you feel this topic is OT or too much "newbie",
please reply me privately or point me to some docs. and How-To.
