Good Idea, Bad Idea

Good idea: Log in as non-privileged user and su to root.

Bad idea: configure telnet to let you login as root.

In addition, using telnet from outside a firewall is a bad idea, as telnet is not secure.

Here's a link for configuring telnet to do this:

Congrats! You win the "Tuesday Night Absurd Question Award" (TNAQA)!

Now, on the slim chance that you're not really a bot:
  1. Do not use telnet to authenticate across a network.
  2. Authenticate as an unprivileged user via an encrypted session (e.g. sshd, perhaps you've heard of it) and then su.
