Hi all,

how can I apply radius authentication for all possible types of freebsd
"telnet" connections?

I am trying to use pam_radius.so for my remote authentication.
 when I add "auth sufficient pam_radius.so" to pam.d/sshd file, it works
fine and authentication is done via radius servers.

If i run telnetd(via inetd) with -X sra option (or if second machine does
not support SRA), if I add mentioned line to pam.d/login file, it correctly
uses radius servers for authentication..

but if SRA connection is set, it seems that authentication is done kinda

in both of these telnet connections, it seems pam.d/telnetd authentication
config is not applied.. am i right?? then why?!

Excuse me for including different questions in one email.. but i found them
all related to my need..
Thank you all for your helps and ideas.

Best Regards,
