Is there a way to limit users to login to only one pseudo tty? - SCO

I realize that you can restrict users to login to certain real ttys in the system. I have a customer that has a security problem. He has a Unix box that is part of an internal TCP/IP network. The PC's in the network connect using an emulator on the local machine connecting via telnet. The desire is to restrict an individual pc to a specific pseudo tty. Any thoughts? rcaddy...

    I'd say you'd be better off to restrict by login name rather than by
    the tty.
    If security is the issue then having a good password policy and
    changing it after a set time frame is pretty good.
    If people are still getting in and it's only a local network, then
    education to the users who are accessing things they should be is
    always a good step too.

    Thanks,
    Don

    Is this a security issue or a conversion from an old serial "network"
    which associated certain printers (ttyxx) with certain terminals
    (ttyzz)?
    My favotite solutions for the 2 problems are quite different.
