    How to turn off user authentication (Censornet 3)

    Put this in the wrong place before

    Hi,

    I have seen the following post on their forum here:

    http://forum.censornet.com/viewtopic.php?t=823 - I dont have a clue what it means

    Yet I do not know where to start at all. How do you again access to where you can edit files.

    Can someone help me turn user authentication off, im very new to this operating system. I managed to get the thing running and thats about it now.

    Please help.

    Thanks, Glenn

    (I am on the lastest Censornet open source version)

    Seems pretty explanatory on that page but anyway.....

    Use an ssh client eg "Putty", to connect to your linux server IP over the network, or login directly from the console to your linux server as a proper user...

    once logged in, type
    su root

    this will ask for password, enter the root password.

    or, just login as root user


    Follow instructions on the page you posted from here on..

    You will need to log onto the box as root then use a text editor to edit the files.

    All that guide is saying is that you are unzipping a folder and changing some lines of code in it.
    The commands you type in are all in bold:
    Rather than using the emacs editor eg
    emacs GetAccessLevel.c

    I would use nano as you should find this a little easier to use.

    so

    nano GetAccessLevel.c
