I'd like to ask about using Limit Network Access to automatically log in
student worker machines, for which I'm trying to simplify password
management. Is this a good way to handle this problem? Or, is this
frowned upon, since it gives anyone who uses the machine access to
Millennium? I'm interested to learn what others think and are doing.
After perusing the IGR, it appears that all I would need to accomplish the
auto log in would be to set up a static IP address, and add the IP and
LOGIN NAME to various entries in the Limit Network Access table. I'd like
students to be able to access Millennium, WebPAC, SSH to text-based system,
and the web, so I would edit the following entries: HTTP, SSHD,
MILLENNIUM. Is that it?
We do this for Millennium logins for student workstations in staff
areas (circ desk, etc.).
The Innovative system supports automatic logins for Telnet
connections, but I don't think it does for SSH connections (unless
you have root access or otherwise can place a key file on the server).
I don't see what you would get by editing entries for HTTP since
there's nothing to log in to. (Unless you're dealing with some sort
sort of scoping issue and LNA can be used to set a scope?)
