I wanted to again say thank you to everyone who responded, and apologize 
  again for my poorly written question.

I think that originally, I was looking for a highly configurable telnet 
equivalent to proftpd or something similar, but several people have 
convinced me that a PAM module is the way to go.

It looks like these PAM modules will meet my needs, specifically the 
PAM_remote_hosts module.



again,  thank you to everyone who replied and offered suggestions.
