Hi,

login as root goto /etc/xinetd.d

There you will find different files for different services. To enable telnet open a file named telnet using

vi telnet

and just change the value of parameter "disable" to no. Similarly for ftp make changes in tftp file.

thanks a bunch.

I was able to telnet.
but did not find tftp.

there is another similar file --- vsftpd.conf ---- is there any parameter that can be changed here to be able to ftp ?

thanks again

Install your ftp software and you will find the file under /etc/xinetd.d

it is better if you restart xinetd deamon

Hi Daljit,

As root I went to /etc/xinetd.d but there is no telnet file in it. But I saw it on another system.

I did ntsysv --level 345 and telnet does not appear as an option. Did I mis-install Redhat?

Thanks and sorry to be a bother

No you havn't installed RedHat incorrectly, it's most likely they havn't included the xinetd file for telnet or it has been removed as telnet is deprecated and insecure.

Consider using SSH (which will almost certainly be running by default) There's a free windows client available called putty, you should be able to google for it and find a download.

To enable telnet however, create a textfile /etc/xinetd.d/telnet and populate it with the following:

service telnet
{
disable = no
flags = REUSE
socket_type = stream
wait = no
user = root
server = /usr/sbin/in.telnetd
log_on_failure += USERID
}

HTH,

dan.

Dan,

I did what you recommended above and I am still not able to telnet into my server. Any ideas?

I'm running Linux AS 3

I tried restarting telnet and i also reboot to try to ensure that telnet would be reset but I'm still unable to telnet into the server.

Rod

hi if you are unable to access via ftp use the sftp command.
