   What do you have in the conserver.passwd file?  You *DO* have one, don’t you?  J


  Most of my users are set to authenticate with their /etc/passwd file entry…

Subject: only root can use console command?




I am missing something simple here, I think.  I have setup 3 console servers, and they each work fine, if the user is root.  If I attempt to access the console of a system as a user I get the following:


> console boromir

console: connect(): 782@console: Connection refused


I have this in my conserver.cf file:


default *       { logfile /logs/console/&; timestamp 30ma; rw *; }


I thought that setting the ‘rw *’ in the default config line would allow any user to connect.  What am I doing wrong?  Why can’t normal user accounts access the console command?


Console –V output below.







console: conserver.com version 8.1.11

console: default initial master server `console'
