Thanks Bob! It was an old post of yours on the list that piqued my
interest in this login method. I don't suppose I do need to edit HTTP;
that's just ignorance on my part. For SSH, someone suggested editing the
Millennium Control Bar, so that "Telnet" opens a TeraTerm script. However,
the students may not really need access to SSH at all.
Thanks so much for clarifying.
