• Fastlogin by Node

    From Alterego@VERT/ALTERANT to All on Wednesday, September 25, 2019 15:48:58
    Howdy,

    I'm playing with shells, and what I would like to do is have users who login to a specific node (node 4 in my case), have no output rendered until they get to the shell.

    So I know logon.js is run, and it has toggles that determine what it does (eg: fastlogin true/false) - but it still outputs "Last few callers", "Auto message" and Node Status.

    I'm assuming logon.js is required - looks like it sets some inactivity timers and things - do I need to modify it so that it is quiet, or is there another way?

    If I have to modify it, can I request an enhancement? Maybe an Exemption that bypasses output in logon.js... :)

    You'd need to modify it.

    But... it sounded you wanted this conditional on the node number that was in use, not an exemption. Just have logon.js check the node number and exit if it's equal to 4.
