Re: root login from telnet

> basically i want to know how to allow root login from remote system ,and i dont want to use "su"

telnet is insecure. use ssh if you *must* login as root (i prefer to disable
root logins directly even on ssh, so that I can audit who became root, when,
and did what...

anyway, if you must, then man securetty
