Jerry, I just saw this. Based on your question, it sounds like you
don't want any telnet sessions. If that is correct, just don't start
telnet. You can keep telnet from auto starting by changing the
autostart telnet attribute to *no. I believe the cmd is CHGTELA or
something close to hat.

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
