Make a backup of the configuration file you are editing before making modifications to any PAM configuration files.
On Linux, the location of the PAM configuration files is /etc/pam.d.
The following sshd will prompt users who ssh to a Unix machine first for a password, then prompt for a two factor SecurID authentication:
If it is not set to yes, make the change and then restart ssh as root:
The following remote file will prompt users who telnet to a Unix machine first for a password, then prompt for a two factor SecurID authentication:
|Notes||All PAM configuration files on Red Hat Linux are located in /etc/pam.d. |
Each protocol (sshd, rlogin, telnet (also known as "remote"), etc.) has its' own unique file name. This differs from Solaris, which uses a single file /etc/pam.conf, for PAM configuration directives.
