Hi all,

My question may sound dummish, excuse me, but would you please tell when
exactly is telnet sra authentication involved??

For example, is it possible to telnet to a Freebsd  machine via a Win node
and set the connection to use SRA? or this is something in Freebsd world?

As i see, when I telnet to my Freebsd machine from another Freebsd machine,
SRA authentication get involved, and changes to pam.d/telnetd auth phase
are applied on the session; but when i telnet to my machine from a Win
node, using putty or Windows telnet client or SecureCRT as telnet client,
SRA auth is not involved; pam.d/telnetd changes are not applied and
pam.d/login changes are applied instead (just like when i use -X sra for
telnetd to disable SRA and it uses system login).
As i checked, for example "putty" doesn't have any config to use sra..

It would be really kind of you to let me know what is exactly happening
here.. Thank you..

Best Regards,
