The virtual consoles tty11 and tty12 give the user access to a shell. Disabling these makes it more diffcult to execute commands or make changes to the system.


By default, the user can access the virtual consoles with the [Ctrl]+[Alt]+[F11] and [Ctrl]+[Alt]+[F12] keyboard commands. To disable access, do the following:

  1. In IGEL Setup go to User Interface > Display > Access Control
  2. Activate Disable Console switching (Default: Console switching enabled)
  3. Click Apply.
