Upon boot-up, ttylinux provides 6 text consoles for login. There are two initial accounts: root, the administrator account, with password password; user, a user account, with password password
The syslogd and klog daemons are running and logging kernel and system messages to the file /var/log/messages.
The available text editor is vi; invoke it by typing vi /path/to/filename. This version of vi is a minimal version provided by busybox. Documentation and help for using vi is available in many places on the web.
For manipulation of users, groups and passwords, the tools adduser, addgroup, deluser, delgroup and passwd are present.
If you have not changed the keyboard settings as outlined in the configuration section, section 3.4.6 above, ttylinux will use its default keyboard settings. The default keyboard mapping is for a US keyboard.
The inetd super-server and the dropbear SSH server are running by default. An FTP or TFTP server will be forked by inetd when receiving either a connect from an FTP or TFTP client, respectively.
ttylinux has no telnet server or client; the dropbear SSH client is used to remotely log in to other hosts.
ttylinux includes a basic packet filtering firewall which is enabled by default. Section 4.7 below describes the configuring the ttylinux firewall.
