BOOTP & rlogin

BOOTP & rlogin

Hi there,

    Anyone know how to get around the authentication when using rlogin from
a terminal that has had its IP adress set with BOOTP?

I think either pam or tcpd or in.rlogind checks to see if the IP address is
entered into the /etc/hosts file. When BOOTP is used, the IP address varies
for each boot-up of the terminal running rlogin.

In my case I am running rlogin from Exceed on an IBM PC running Windows 3.1.
