Is this just a general qn, or do you have specific issues? To start with, look on the CDs for the following filenames:
openssh-server-2.1.1p4-1.i386.rpm
and similar.... for ssh.
apache-1.3.12-25.i386.rpm
and similar for apache.
to install, use the cmd
rpm -ivh <filename>.i386.rpm
and read the man pages and /usr/share/doc pages. See also www.tldp.org (The Linux Doc Proj) for HOWTOs.

well, when you installed, it should have asked if you want to create a boot/rescue floppy. You should have said yes . If you did, boot from that and do B below. If no floppy, do A + B.

A
At the initlal boot (right at the start) enter
linux single
or
linux 1
this should get you into a console mode with minimal abilites, but as root.

B
Edit /etc/inittab and change
id:5:initdefault:
to
id:3:initdefault:
and reboot. That'll get you a full system in console mode smile.gif

Its implying you want to have Apache run https (aka SSL) which is on port 443. For this, you need an SSL certificate. You'll need to read up on this if you need SSL. To be honest, if you're not handling eg CC nums then you can probably manage on port 80 (normal http). The httpd.conf file has a lot of info/comments in it about how to enable/disable SSL.
Depends on your distro, but in RH the file location is /etc/httpd/conf/

You copuld try the 'pack()' fn in Perl, You can specify endian order eg
n = short in network/big endian
N = long " " " "
v= short in little endian
V = long " " "
see also unpack()

Actually i agree re ssh, but he did ask about telnet. Ssh can be a bit intimidating if you've never seen it before smile.gif

Which distro eg RedHat/Mandrake/Suse?
For rpms (assuming your system is rpm aware)

rpm -ivh filename.rpm - to install
rpm -Uvh filename.rpm - to upgrade an extant rpm
rpm -e filename.rpm - to remove (erase) and installed pkg

Incidentally, don't use files ending in .src.rpm for now.

For files like .tgz, .tar.gz
tar -zxvf filename.tgz - to extract contents
Make sure you create a new dir first and put the .tgz file in there before doing this, as they create a lot of files. Then after the extract, read any Install/Readme files to see what comes next.

For .bin files, make sure they have executable permissions (use 'ls -l'), then ./filename.bin should install it.

NB: You should be root to do installs as a rule.

Check that xinetd is running, then look in /etc/xinetd.d dir for the telnet file and set "disable=no" in the file
smile.gif
Also check that port 23 is open (see /etc/services file).

Well in that case he's got a couple of options if he's using RH.

1. The Redhat Network Daemon will go look for updates automatically if left running and attached to internet. (Personally I prefer more postive ctrl; see next)
2. ssh into the box and run up2date from the cmd line

I believe its even poss to run the desktop/gui from across the net/Lan, but i've never tried, so i won't comment further on that.

Concur with tourettes: /tmp is the system scratch area and should be cleaned regularly.
If you want to store files for eg install use /opt and create a sub-dir for each one. Easier to tidy up later.

2 possibilities come to mind:

1) do this as root user

2) make sure that's 2 dashes/hyphens in front of the rebuild option;
most options are only preceded by 1

I find that registering with RH solves this. I think the 1st system is free ?
Anyway, all you have to do is load eg pico from CD and then run up2date. This tool not only updates
you to the latest ver inc patches, but automatically updates any dependencies also.
Sorted.. smile.gif

Try this site www.tldp.org (The Linux Documentation Proj). Loads of HOWTOs.
Just FYI, did "dsl howto" in their search engine and got 97 hits ...

Glad to help smile.gif
BTW, if you're using Redhat and register with them (i think the 1st system is free),
the up2date tool on the System menu resolves dependecies automatically too.

I think ma ybe we have a different idea of "server". After all, if you want to update eg up2date, it has to go to the RH server to get the updates...
Which "server" are you trying to avoid??

I'd say you need to make sure you are using backquote (aka backtick) marks (`), NOT single quote marks (').
Backticks make the contents a cmd; single quotes just make it a string.
Its an old (quick'n'dirty) shell programming trick to generate a list of files wink.gif

Can you clarify what you mean by update without going to server? huh.gif

well, should be a text file, similar to /etc/fstab. If you can cat it ok , then you can copy the contents to a temp file eg

cat /etc/mtab >/etc/mymtab

then check perms. Should be -rw-r--r--. Set /etc/mymtab to this. Then

rm /etc/mtab

mv /etc/mymtab /etc/mtab

BTW, you have to be root to mess with anything in /etc. You may also need to use the chattr cmd (man chattr) to enable you to do this.
Good Luck

Try the directory you did the install from (you didn't delete it did you?).
Some pkgs come with a

make uninstall

option. Also, you may be able to figure out the info from the README/install script.
Good luck

Personally, i'd give them different names as well as diff ip addresses. Then you'll get more sense from such things as ping, traceroute etc. Also, it'd enable you to use DNS eventually.

Cheers

Actually, each machine needs a separate identity, so you should have gone
with gareth-net1 with ip 192.168.0.1 for machine1, then gareth-net2 with ip 192.168.0.2 for 2nd machine.
Hope this helps
