Re: Telnet

Shalom,

It would really help to know what Linux distribution you use.

Most install a telnet server but do not configure it to start. Why? Because telnet authenticates in clear text and is thus not secure.

cd /etc/xinetd.d

Check the telnet file

Change disable = yes to disble = no

restart the xinetd daemon.

Your milage may vary.
