Re: preblems to connect with telnet


What does

ls -l /dev/pts/ta

show?

Mine:
# ls -l /dev/pts/ta
crw-rw-rw- 1 root root 33 0x000000 Jan 6 10:40 /dev/pts/ta

Re: preblems to connect with telnet


What version of the OS do you have?

What are you telnet'ing TO?
What are you telnet'ing FROM?

When was the last patch bundle installed? - Basically, do you have your machine fully patched?

Can you rlogin - if so -check the version of patches vs what version is bound in /stand/vmunix

Re: preblems to connect with telnet

Based on Harry's post and your original post, I think you will find a directory has been created where there should be a character device like Harry's ls -l command.

cd to the directory

cd /dev/pts/ta

Make sure there isn't anything important there. If there is, move it, then rmdir the directory.

You will also need to insf the terminal device as well.

Re: preblems to connect with telnet

Can anyone tell me why I would not have the /dev/pts/ta directory in the first place. This is a test box that I use at home, so I am able to load whatever needs to be loaded onto it. I just performed a fresh install from CD and it still doesn't work.

I am trying to telnet to the server, but get:

telnetd: /dev/pts/ta: No such file or directory.

Connection to host lost.

Help please!
