Cannot telnet using root

Hi Everyone,

I've tried to telnet to my Linux RedHat 7.0 machine using root account but it does not allow me. I do not have the problem with any other account.

Why is this so and how do I overcome this?

Thks on advance!

Calence,

For security Resaons Telent for root ist disabled on most Unix Systems.
You can enable, but it is strongly recommented to do not.
Connect as a User and change User to root.
Or better: Use SSH.

so long
