I have just installed FreeBSD 8.1 as a VMWare host and can establish ipv4 connectivity to the instance and
telnet through the virtual console. I have also uncommented the
telnet stream tcp nowait root /usr/libexec/telnetd telnetd telnet stream tcp6 nowait root /usr/libexec/telnetd telnetd
When I login without telnet via new virtual console terminals with
login: root and
password the default of empty, the login is accepted.
However, when I login remotely via telnet, I am prompted exactly the same as before, except for an additional first line that reads
(freebsd.westell.com) (pts/0). I use the same login of
root as before but get
login incorrect message. What is missing here to successfully login to a telnet session?
root is the only user currently, am I missing
Alternatively, if someone can show how to configure SSH and login remotely on FreeBSD 8.1, in
< 5 easy steps which spell out exactly which configuration files and lines need to be edited, I'll take that. I haven't found this in their documentation.
