Is there something we've missed on the new shell server?

As of Sunday, the dial-in feature of using "mball.shell" to get a tty connection to the shell server instead of ppp still connects to the old server.


I didn't realize people were still using that feature...

But I don't see how it could have worked over the past few months: we don't allow telnet or rsh connections anymore, just ssh.

BTW, I'm asking around about this -- if the dialup equipment supports ssh, this is the first I've heard of it.

Apparently it's rlogin since in.rlogind is the shell's parent.
I guess a good way to kill a feature is pointing out that it exists.

Ah, found it -- in.rlogind was being spawned by xinetd.

Will see what I can do to make this work. Wondering if the RAS's support ssh, will see.
