 +===== No Guest =====
 +:?: **Question:​**\\
 +How do disable the Guest user account on the BBS?
 +
 +
 +:!: **Answer:​**\\
 +You don't have to have a Guest (G-[[access:​restrictions|restricted]] user) account. If you don't create a Guest account to begin with, you won't have one. If you created a Guest account and you don't want it, then simply deleting the user account from the user base will work. However, without a Guest account, anonymous FTP access will not be available and some web UI elements may not function as is normally expected. To keep the Guest account but disallow logins to the Terminal Server (the traditional BBS user experience),​ set [[util:​SCFG]]->​Nodes->​Node 1->Logon Requirements->​Requirement String to:
 +  NOT GUEST
 +
 +Doing this will cause terminal logons as "​Guest"​ to be rejected with the following (configurable) message:
 +  You do not have sufficient access for this node.
 +
 +**Note:​**\\  ​
 +You do not have to configure the other nodes (Node 2, 3, etc.) in [[util:​SCFG]] so long as they fall within the range of the ''​FirstNode''/''​LastNode''​ key values from the [[config:​sbbs.ini#​BBS|[BBS]]] section of your ''​[[dir:​ctrl]]/​[[config:​sbbs.ini]]''​ file.
