Hi, I have Mathematica 4.02 installed on my Sun SPARCstation 20. If I log onto the console, or remotely using ssh or telnet, the machine knows I've already installed the passwords and works fine when I run the command line version of Mathematica (math). If instead I log in, using the telnet plugin of a programme called Webadmin http://www.webmin.com/webmin/ which allows one to remotely administer unix systems using a web browser, math does not realise the passwords are installed, and so asks for them. I can't see how mathematica knows the difference between this and a standard telnet session. All the file systems are mounted, the passwords are accessable, and every other command seems to work exactly as if I were loging in via telnet, or on the console. Any suggestions ? -- Dr. David Kirkby Ph.D, email: REMOOVE_THIS_drkirkby at AND_THIS_ntlworld.com former email address: davek at DELLETE_THIS_medphys.ucl.ac.uk web page: http://www.david-kirkby.co.uk Amateur radio callsign: G8WRB
