I don't see how locking the screen protects your computer over the network at all.1. *Just locking my screen does that help security (outside)
X-windows based programs will be closed but command-line based programs will stay open if you told them to run in the background.2. *If I logout will that keep the game and things like tkseti and licq running?
I'm not sure what you're asking here.3. *Can I make a script that will at startup load licq tkseti, mud, and dns2go's dynamic IP to name resolver update?
The mud itself is probably a telnet-based server. When users telnet to a certain port, the mud intercepts it and communicates in a protocol that's compatible with telnet. If you were actually using the telnet daemon, users would have to log in before they could play. (I don't mean log in as a mud character. I mean log in as someone on the local machine.) I hope this explains it.From a security point last night I disabled Telnet and enabled ssh now the users that I host must use ssh to log in (I think this is better)? *Game Players can still use Telnet to access the mud (BTW how does that work?) if it is a disabled service at bootup?
