RE: console connection prompts for root password

   You are describing the difference between an 'allowed' connection,
and a 'trusted' connection. :-)

  In your conserver.cf file, at the bottom, try adding the IP address of
the machine you are using the client from, and denoting it as "trusted".
This presumes that you have faith in the authentication on the 'client',
so then Conserver will not challenge you again for the password as you
connect through the server. :-)

Subject: console connection prompts for root password

I'm new to this list and to conserver.  I have just set up an OpenGear 
CM4148 console server attached to a single conserver client machine 
running RedHat AS 4.  Things seem to be working fine, but I'd like to 
make a change to the password behavior.

Currently, I log in to the conserver client machine and attach to 
"console fred".  The MOTD appears and I have to press the Enter key to 
continue.  The I am prompted for a root password.  Once I enter that, I 
get a console login prompt "fred console login:  ".  Is there a way to 
configure conserver so that there is not a prompt for the root password 
before receiving the console login prompt?

I would like to be able to just attach to the console using "console 
fred" and get the "fred console login:  " prompt without having any 
other password prompt in between.

Any help is appreciated,
