This may be so, but I would have agreed with Jerry that setting QAUTOVRT
to 0 would prevent the automatic configuration of virtual devices.

You need a Telnet Exit Program.
Google it. I know I've written two or three articles on how to do this
(code samples) over the years and probably others have too so you'll
find one pretty easy I'd think.
It's very easy to do the exit pgm for this but make sure you have
everything correct because it's also easy to screw it up and lock
everyone out of
TIP: Make sure you keep one or two sessions already logged on while you
test this because if you break it...you won't be able to log in from
anywhere...it will not affect you already active sessions though.

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