I have system values set as:

QAUTOCFG = 0

QAUTOVRT = 0

Which, I thought, would prevent a telnet service, such as iSeries Access or
Telnet from a DOS command line, from gaining access to a System i. That is,
no signon panel, no login.



Obviously, that's not true (we're on V5R1). I was just working with a
purchasing guy. He already had iSeries Access installed but no PC5250
session configured. So, without thinking, I started the Create New Session.
My immediate thought was, as I intimated earlier, "This is going to blow
up." But it didn't. I got one of those generic QPADEVxxxx sessions.



I, also, got the QPADEVxxxx signon when I ran Telnet from a DOS command box.



Is there any system value or whatever that would prevent access to a signon
panel?
