That should work. The one time I've had a problem with this, it's been because there wasn't a 'telnetd' or 'other' entry set up in /etc/pam.d

I'll do some experiments with it, particularly with shadow authentication, which I don't often use.

If you run ptelnetd --help you should see an email address where we can discuss things further.

I am trying to use ptelnetd in a very simple way.

I just want to restrict access to the lo (loopback) interface.

I tried --- ptelnetd -i lo -A shadow,pam --- but I can't get a user to authenticate and log in.

I am running openSUSE 13.1 as a test bed, but I eventually hope to run on AIX.

I'm sure I missed something obvious. What is it?
