This is completely described in the Manual accompaning the release of NOS.
( RTFM ) !!!!!!
Thus: you can tune NOS like you want it. If you don't like a feature
there is a way to disable it.....
Note that there is also a "automatic login" feature in NOS for ftp
sessions (using /net.rc). (also in the Manual)
You can even set a default user if no net.rc file is present via a
set user (dos environement) variable for ftp and rlogin sessions.
But read the Manual.....
