G'day. I have some questions on the Sun Solaris 2.6 OS. I would appreciate if you could refer me some write up or information on the following questions.

1. Terminal Time Out feature ?
- Is this OS capable of doing this ? If the terminal is idle for a certain time of period. The system should be able to kid out the terminal automatically based on the time frame set.

2. List of system log (per event) ?
- Is this OS capable of providing this for the OS and user events log ?

3. Printing of the system log
- Is it able to print out the system log if system log is available!

4. Period change of Password
- Is the system able to set periodic password change for the system users ?

Thank you.

1. auto terminal time out : I know telnet windows have a timeout and close after some idle time.
Donno about what terminal you talk about exactly.
2. system logs on Solaris 2.6 are under /var for example :
/var/adm/messages - system messages log.
/var/log/syslog - the syslogd main logfile - usually inclode sendmail's log too.
logging of the logon/logoff is available with the 'last' commmand.
There are many other logs on the system :
e.g. /var/cron/logs - logs of the crontab.
user's command history can be kept in some shells automaticaly in .history.
4. Yes password's termination is a built in feature read man passwd , enter it via admintool or useradd or manually in /etc/shadow. (only if you know what you're doing).

Hope that helps,
