In article <E10cpjj-0006D2firstname.lastname@example.org> you write:
:When logging into a NetBSD-1.4_BETA/i386 of 27 Apr from a digital VT420
:terminal, telnetd accepts the username correctly, then presumably invokes
:login which prompts for the password. Now "return" is no longer recognised,
:though it was by telnetd for the username. Using ^J instead of return gets
:the password into login, but it is rejected, and telnetd puts up a new login:
:prompt. Do any of you have some words of wisdom?
Check your parity settings. This is a common symptom of parity mismatch.
