root logins & "su" to root

Post by Andrew T. Co » Sat, 12 Jan 1991 07:49:20



Has anyone been successful in restricting
1. root logins to a specific terminal
2. still allow "su" to root from all terminals

Appreciate anyone's help

The restriction for tty's is applied to both login and su.

1. "Login" and "su" issue with root password

Hello,
i just upgraded from Mandrake 8.0 to 8.2
