Re: Telnetd Source for LINUX

"Linux" is just a kernel. Different Linux distributions (Red Hat, Suse, Debian, etc.) may have different telnet daemons bundled with them (though in practice it's very incestuous). You can get the different telnet daemons from the web sites of the different distributors (redhat.com, suse.com, debian.com, etc.). There's also the *BSD versions, which you can get from the respecitve *BSD sites (freebsd.org, openbsd.org, and netbsd.org).

Re: Telnetd Source for LINUX

I found a version here:

http://www.rpmfind.net//linux/RPM/yellowdog/1.0/updates/champion-1.1/SRPMS/telnet-0.10-29.src.html

It appears to be an older version though. The souce you are looking for should come with a distribution of Red Hat 7.1. What disto are you using. The file above says it is for Yellow Dog, but you may be able to start from there.

Hello,

You can also get the "GNU" version (probably one of the most "official" ones) at :

http://www.gnu.org/software/inetutils/inetutils.html

The same package includes most common network services (both client and server software).

Good luck.

Re: Telnetd Source for LINUX

Found it!

ftp://ftp.redhat.com/pub/redhat/linux/6.0/en/os/i386/SRPMS/telnet-0.10-27.src.rpm

this is the telnet source for Red Hat 6.0. It includes the source for telnetd that came with that version.

You just install the *.src.rpm that you download with the link above, find the sources (it was in /usr/src/redhat/SOURCES on my box), then tar zxf netkit-telnet-0.10.tar.gz. Once that is done you can just go into the 'netkit-telnet-0.10' directory and there you will see a folder for telnetd. In that folder you will find the sources.

I hope this is helpful.
