Why time slot mentioned in /etc/security/time.conf doesn't work


I have made change in my /etc/security/time.conf file as :-

login ; tty* & !ttyp* ; !root ; !Al0000-2400

And also added following statement in /etc/pam.d/login as the first statement of my file:-

account required

Actually it should deny all users except for root to console-login at all times.

But its not showing the desired functionality. I am able to login as user into my system.

How can get the desired functionality ?? can anyone help me in that????

Thanks in advance.

sorry i dont use pam.. but a quick search brought a very nice page with 24 sections (specifically 7,8 and 15?) about configuring and info about it.

hope something in it is relevant and helpful.
