#11064 closed defect (invalid)

startup telnet does not work - default /etc/passwd has password?

I'm not sure if this is a bug (as i'm not a seasoned veteran), but I think the default passwd file says it has a password for root (i.e. the "x" next to root).

The manifestation for me is that telnet does not work on a clean startup, because /etc/init.d/telnet looks for the password flag.

Looks like the passwd file change was intentional. Maybe the telnet script in busybox needs to be fixed?

Oops. I had a custom (and present in the compiled image) authorized_keys file and apparently that is one of the tests that prevented telnet from starting up. My debugging led me down the wrong path.
