login and password in telnet

0 votes
Hello,

Telnet does not require a login and password unlike ftp, is there a way to request a login and password when opening a telnet session?

Hi,

If you set login password to your device, then telnet to the device, automatically it will ask for login password.

I found during the creation of telnet in inittab. I change:

:: sysinit :/bin/sh-l-c '/ usr/sbin/telnetd-l /bin/sh'
by
:: sysinit :/bin/sh-l-c '/usr/sbin/telnetd-l /bin/login'
