Thu Jan 14 09:26:14 PST 1999 — On Monday January 25th, we’ll be changing the default login service from shell to PPP. This will affect current shell users who are using a dialup terminal program to reach the shell server. Starting now, please use ‘username.shell’ to log in and reach the shell server – after the 25th, logging in as ‘username’ will serve PPP by default.
This only affects customers who dial directly up to the shell server. SSH and telnet sessions are not affected. PPP users who use ‘username.ppp’ are not affected.
For ease of typing and memory, we’ve also enabled ‘username.sh’ and ‘username.unix’ to shell access. Please begin using ‘username.shell’ or one of these alternatives immediatly. -Dane
