    Default Howto secure console unauthorized logon

    Hi There,

    How can I secure the console to prevent unauthorized logon to Untangle & password change on the Untangle box. Users connected monitor & keyboard to server and rebooted server and changed settings and password.

    How about putting the server in a locked room?

    Make the password more difficult? Go into terminal and set up a password there?

    It won't matter, there is a webgui password reset button on the console.

    nothing in software matters if they have physical access to the box

    I was hoping to remove the reset option as this box is not locked away, unable to lock away, everybody can see the box and the on-site IT guy is not trusted.

    You could set the terminal password, the crash X. Then you would only be presented with a shell login that cannot be changed easily. I dont know if crashing X would cause some adverse side effects however.

    But make sure you have setup a console password first! Do this by clicking on the console button from the start page of the GUI. It will ask you to create a root password. If you dont, and you kill X, you will have no way to login locally to the machine.
