Multi-Protocol Remote Login provides a middleware allowing SSH, telnet, and local logins from the login: prompt.
MPRL is a middleware application between a *getty program and SSH, telnet, and other such remote-login protocols. It allows a user at a Linux terminal to log into other systems without needing a valid local user-id. It currently supports telnet, ssh, and /bin/login.
It syntax follows the [protocol:]user[@host][:port] fashion.
These are valid 'logins':
· buanzo - Normal local login: /bin/login gets called.
· firstname.lastname@example.org - SSH protocol by default: /usr/bin/ssh gets called
· Portable OpenSSH (recommended)
What's New in This Release:
· IT DOES FINALLY WORK
· Multiple bugs fixed. No vulnerability yet, anyway. All of them related to strncpy, missing memset's and such. File: buennoc.[ch]
· Implemented an error-detecting and reporting malloc* routine, called buennoc. (yeah, funny, isn't it?). It does also set the memory to zero. By the way, the name of the function was an idea of my friend, Alan Schmidt.
· Added some error codes to parse_mprl_conf(). It's because a prototype was modified to add a referenced variable which contains an error code. Defined in parser.h
