Re: I can't telnet to linux

Telnet is not secure, so please do not use.
access your Linux box via 'ssh', if you want to remotely access/manage your Linux box/Server.

SSH(client/server) is installed by default.

on your Linux Server(which you want to remotely managed/administered), start the 'ssh' daemon via following command

service sshd start

after running the above command, from any other linux machine, access your Linux Server via following command

ssh userid@ip.of.linux.server

if you want to remotely access your Linux server from a windows client then first install PuTTY(ssh client for windows).

PuTTy can be download from

Re: I can't telnet to linux

hi,

you should use ssh instead of telnet.

the telnetd is not running on your system.


hire are some examples how to enable Telnet server on RHEL.

Re: I can't telnet to linux

linux is great, it protects you from doing silly things like using telnet.
leave the 90ties behind and discover the wonderfull world of ssh.
