Re: console login and telnet probs..



No it's not that. I answered my own question about 2 hours after I asked. I
had permission problems on my /etc/passwd file. My post are showing up about
3 days late and are for others as well. That is why I guess you did not see
my reply to my first message. I am sending this by the way at 10:48 PM CST
on May 18 because it will probably not show up for about 3 days. At least I
won't see it for 3 days.

Thanks,
