Question OpenBSD user AutoLogin after boot?

Hi all,
How can I configure my OpenBSD to auto login (any user or root) after the boot sequence?
BTW, I don't access to any X window system and I need some terminal commands.
Thanks in advance.

I think the easiest solution is to edit the /etc/rc.local file and add
Code:
su - <user>
But if you want a better solution, getty(8) should interest you.

I never tried to do that, so I cannot help you more than that...

If you know the commands to be executed, just create and use /etc/rc.local.

From the rc(8) man page:
Quote:
rc.local is executed towards the end of rc (it is not the very last as there are a few services that must be started at the very end). Normally, rc.local contains commands and daemons that are not part of the stock installation.

While I understand the convenience, I question the circumventing of security. What is the goal?
