[cobalt-security] Telnet stopped working

Hi All,

We've had a RaQ3 for about a month now...and I'm very impressed. But a strange thing has happened and I wanted to see if any of you have encountered the problem. Telnet has been working fine, until a couple of days ago. I can no longer login as "admin" or as myself. Here's a typical session:

Cobalt Linux release 5.0 (Pacifica)
Kernel 2.2.12C3 on an i586
login: admin
Login incorrect

Telnet is still enabled, and I can still access the site via the web interface, and/or ftp as "admin", so I know that the password is still ok. Any Ideas on what has happened and what the fix is? This one is stumping both my partner and I (We've been doing Unix for a LONG time).

Regards, Bill
