       telnetd, rlogind, rexexec, ftpd - Internet remote access daemons

       ip/telnetd [-adnptN] [-u user]



       ip/ftpd [-aAde] [-n namepace-file]

       These  programs	support remote access across the Internet.  All expect
       the network connection to be standard input, output, and	 error.	  They
       are normally started from scripts in /rc/bin/service (see listen(8)).

       Telnetd	allows	login  from a remote client.  There are three types of

       normal Normal users log in by  encrypting  and  returning  a  challenge
	      printed  by telnetd.  The user can use either the netkey program
	      (see  passwd(1))	or  a	SecureNet  handheld  authenticator  to
	      encrypt the challenge.  /lib/namespace defines the namespace.

	      Users  in	 group noworld in /adm/users authenticate with a pass‐
	      word in the clear.  /lib/namespace.noworld  defines  the	names‐

	      User  none  requires  no authentication.	/lib/namespace defines
	      the namespace.

       Telnetd's options are:

       a   allow anonymous login by none

       d   print debugging to standard error

       p   don't originate any telnet control codes

       n   turn on local character echoing and imply the p option

       t   trusted, that is, don't authenticate

       u   use user as the local account name

       N   permit connections by `noworld' users only.

       Rlogind logs in using the BSD remote  login  protocol.	Rlogind	 execs
       telnetd -nu after completing its initial handshake.

       Rexexec	executes  a  command locally for a remote client.  It uses the
       standard Plan 9 authentication (see authsrv(6)).

       Ftpd runs the Internet file  transfer  protocol.	  Users	 may  transfer
       files  in  either  direction between the local and remote machines.  As
       for telnetd, there are three types of login:

       normal Normal users authenticate via the same challenge/response as for
	      telnetd.	 /usr/username/lib/namespace.ftp or, if that file does
	      not exist, /lib/namespace defines the namespace.

	      Users in group noworld in /adm/users login using a  password  in
	      the clear.  /lib/namespace.noworld defines the namespace.

	      Users  anonymous	and none require no authentication.  The argu‐
	      ment to the -n option (default /lib/namespace.ftp)  defines  the
	      namespace.   Anonymous users may only store files in the subtree
	      below /incoming.

       Ftpd's options are:

       a   allow anonymous access

       A   allow only anonymous access

       d   write debugging output to standard error

       e   treat any user as anonymous

       n   the namespace for anonymous users (default /lib/namespace.ftp)

       To preserve intended protections in shared file	trees,	any  directory
       containing a file .httplogin is locked by ftpd; see httpd(8).
