Introducing InetD Admin
InetD Admin is an administration tool that lets you control access to the server daemons on your PC. For each remote user, you assign a password to access your PC, specify the services the user can access (Telnet, Xstart, and FTP), and specify file access permissions.
InetD Admin is available only for Windows 95/98/Me systems, and is installed in the System Administration folder of your application. Windows NT and Windows 2000 systems have security features equivalent to InetD Admin.
Each Password file entry contains a user name, an assigned password, setup information, and permissions.
You can use InetD Admin for typical user access management tasks, including:
- creating new users
- assigning access rights to new users
- modifying or deleting user access rights
- changing user passwords
The first time you open InetD Admin, you must create a list of remote users who are permitted to access your PC. For more information, see Creating a User List.
