My current ISP runs FreeBSD 2.2.6 and allows telnet access, etc.
My original account name was more than 8 characters but I have to
access email and telnet with my last name due to an 8 character
limitation. Some sort of alias was setup. A month or two ago I changed
my password via telnet and the only way I could connect was to use my
real name and new password - my original intent. A week or so ago I
could not login. I tried my old username and password and that worked.
I've tried changing the password again but that does not work. The
admin says my PPP setup will not be changed when I telnet in - just my
shell account, email, etc. I use new password for email and telnet
but cannot figure out how to change my PPP dialup password again.
Any advise would be appreciated.
