Version 3.5.0

One more things do u have any idea to use telnet with auto login with username and password example telnet <HOST> USERNAME@PASSWORD

under unix we can automactic telnet without prompt the username and password

for version 3.5 you can add the line telnetd -u password and of course it's not secure

if you know rexx you can compile this program with rexx2exe
search over internet 4 rexx2exe

/* Rexx Programm rexxtelnd */
 'telnetd -u password'
exit 0

and add line to you startup.cmd
 call \os2\rexxtelnd.exe

nb: password is the value of the password

I don't yet know if there's oportinity to login automatically, I'll keep you in post.
Please remind me.

By the way, this is not secure and openssh exist to set it secure. you should also upgrade your OS/2 MPTS LS and TCPIP version to Convenience Pack
