Fedora Core 3: How do I enable remote root login?


Hi all,

although we have added the 'pts/0 - pts/... devices to the
/etc/securetty file we can't remote login as root.
The /var/log/messages says:

localhost login: ROOT LOGIN REFUSED ON pts/3 FROM ...

Is something wrong with our /etc/pam.d/login file:

#%PAM-1.0
auth required pam_securetty.so
auth required pam_stack.so service=system-auth
auth required pam_nologin.so
account required pam_stack.so service=system-auth
password required pam_stack.so service=system-auth
# pam_selinux.so close should be the first session rule
session required pam_selinux.so close
session required pam_stack.so service=system-auth
session optional pam_console.so
# pam_selinux.so open should be the last session rule
session required pam_selinux.so multiple open

Many thanks in advance for any help!

Rainer B.

I'm not sure about this, but this might be related to the "PermitRootLogin" in /etc/ssh/sshd_config

Unfortunately NOT!

I'm using 'telnet' from a remote host.
