it's a very remedial question-- I'm trying to log on to Unix via telnet.  I'm then prompted by
User: ( I type my user)
Radius Password: I don't have one--
I gather that this is a preface or precursor of actually Loggin into--where I would type my actual user ID and Password--but I can't get to that point and need assistance

Your Radius password might be your Unix password, did you try it?

You'll most likely need to contact your network administrator to find out about the Radius login.

At this point you are being prompted for the user/password on the REMOTE server you are telneting to. If your account doesnt also exist on the remote server then at the user prompt you would type in a valid account name followed by the password for that account on that server. Note (and you may know this?) just because you have a login account on one server and have access to telnet to another server doesnt mean your account exists on both.
either add your account to the remote server or have the sys admin do it for you. I can be of more assistance here but would need further info/insight as to your particular setup.

Good Luck.

At least on our server the Radius password only happens for dialins. The telnet program would never ask that. The radius password would be the same as your PPP password or POPmail password.  The telnet password is controlled by the shell command. On our system you can use passwd command to change the shells passwd (therefor your telnet password) but it wouldnt change your radius password.

The system administrator would have to tell you for sure how they have it set up.
