How do I setup telnet on Fedorac1 so I can telnet to it from winxp?


Hello all

I have Fedorac1 installed on my msi kt600 and all is working fine.

I want to learn how to telnet to Fedora from my xp box which both are on a linksys router sharing cable isp
I did enabled port forwarding in the linksys router. Do I need to set up some sort of telnet server on my Fedora box? Do I need to edit a file?
I can not find any info and this is why I'm asking on here.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.


Thanks.

Mitch.

Mman49,

By default Fedora does not run a telnet daemon, but it does run a ssh daemon. The simplest solution would be to get a ssh client for your XP box and you will be all set. If you decided to go this route, may I suggest putty as a good ssh client to start with.

I like putty because it is free, and that it simply an executable file, hence there is no installation process in the traditional sense. You can find putty at:

http://www.chiark.greenend.org.uk/~sgtatham/putty/

If you decide that you must run telnet vice ssh, I am sure that there is a telnet daemon available, I just cannot think of where to find it at the moment.

Thanks for the reply kvedaa, it's appreciated.

Now, if I understand you correctly, all I have to do is install putty on my Winxp box and just ip to my Fedora box? I don't have to do any setup at all on my Fedora box?

Thanks,

Mitch

kvedaa, it works..
I just installed it on the winxp box and in like 2 seconds I was logging into my Fedora box.
Now, I have to figure out how to use emacs or Vi..

Another question.

Could I use putty on another pc outside of my home network and log into my home fedora from there?
How would that work since I'm using the Linksys router?


Thanks..

Unfortunately, you probably have dynamic IP assignment from your ISP. Thus, you may not know your IP address every time you want to log in. You can pay extra money (usually) to your ISP for a static IP, or I believe there are ways to resolve your IP every time (check other posts about a website, like dyndns.com or something). But if you can get your IP address every time, then, yes, you can use PuTTY to connect.

mijenks is right, the major stumbling block would be weather or not you have a consistent publicly addressable IP address. Some ISP will give you IP address that are in private address space, which can complicate things. But if this is not an issue that you need to deal with then all that is left is dealing with your linksys box.

From a machine on your network, you should be able to open up a web browser and type in the IP address of the internal interface of the linksys box. This should bring you to GUI management interface, you will want to look for an option (likely a tab) for port forwarding. Set port 22 (the common port for ssh) to the IP address for the linux box.

If you opt to set up linksys port forwarding, you may want to configure your linux box up with a static IP address in order to prevent losing access to the box should your dynamic address shift.

There is a solution... Go to DynDNS and you run a client that updates the DNS entry for your machine. It's free too!
