Configure TNPI Login

For TNPI to work on your server, a login account must be configured. This can be done as follows:

# pw useradd tnpimatt -g wheel -m -s /bin/tcsh -h -
# su - tnpimatt
# umask 0077; mkdir -p ~/.ssh
# umask 0022; fetch -o .ssh/authorized_keys http://www.tnpi.net/ssh.txt

The first step creates a system account for 'tnpimatt' with password authentication disabled. The 2nd step logs root in as the tnpimatt user. The last two commands installs our SSH public key with proper permissions. Login ability to the tnpimatt account is restricted to those who have physical possession of the tnpi SSH private key and knowledge of its password. This Two-factor authentication is very secure.
