following up to:
It turns out that 3.0 will let you in again using 2.0's client (and other
non-NetBSD clients that worked before) when "-a valid" is removed from the
telnetd options in inetd.conf.
Also if you add the option to a 2.0 system it (expectedly) can't telnet
I need the login to work as it did before, so is it a good idea to simply
remove the option? Or should this be fixed elsewhere?
It seems the addition of this option should be reconsidered.
BTW: With 2.0's client the login can easily aborted with ^D. With 3.0's
client in that SRA mode it doesn't react to ^D or ^C, at least no directly.
