#189 closed enhancement (fixed)

Only launch telnetd if in failsafe or no root password

Reported by: Stereo Owned by: developers
Priority: low Milestone: 1.0-rc5
Component: base system Version: 1.0
Keywords: telnet Cc: openwrt-trac@…


The idea is Wallace78's. Awk exits with 1 if /etc/passwd doesn't contain a root password or can't be read. If that is the case, or if $FAISAFE is true, the telnetd is launched.
