Subject: restricting telnet via username

Hello all,
  I'm attempting to restrict a telnet session of a group of users who
need to run one application on a server.  They login via telnet and that
is the only option at the moment.  They need to run a shell script and
then that will launch the app.  I've set the shell for these users to
the shell script so they won't have access to anything but this app.  I
would like to restrict the telnet daemon further to allow only certain
user names so they can't do a brute force attack.  In sshd_config I've
aways used allowd users setting but I don't see that in the hpux telnet
config.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.

which os and which app combo ?

if you are using windows then just add all the users that you want telnet access to to TelnetUsers group and if you are 
using unix you will have tell which version and which os for us ( the list ) to help you 

are u using telnet or ssh ?

please post more info ...
