Full Version: Telnet problems
Linuxhelp > Support > Technical Support
huh.gif Just installed a new Redhat 9 box and all is well but I cannot telnet to it. I can access it with ssh, but not telnet. I have it setup in the system firewall and also my main firewall to allow telnet but no go. Also I have Angry IP scanner and when I scan my network I get the IPs, Host name, and mac of all computers/network gear on my network but not this box. I can get the IP only, it can access the net and ping any box on the network or intenet. Any ideas out there? blink.gif
Is the telnet daemon actually running? Use "netstat -ltp" to list all listening services.

Active Internet connections (only servers)

Ok guys found the issue, wink.gif In Redhat 9 the "telnet" client is installed by default; the telntd daemon is not. Thats why it will not respond to the telnet request. SSH is a better way to access and admin the box anyway. Thanks to all that helped laugh.gif
