How to turn on telnet and FTP after installing Linux Redhat Advance Server 2.1


Hi all,

Sorry, I am not a Linux admin plus I am new with Linux. I was able to install Linux Redhat Advance Server 2.1 after reading some docs. Now my next question is how can I turn on or enable Telnet and FTP on this new Linux box.

I have done this before but I can't remember now. something in xinetd but I can't remember. could someone please give me the full instruction of how to do that ????


thanks a bunch

Used to be you edited /etc/inetd.conf, but nowadays you set up files in /etc/inetd.d.

Try the tool "ntsysv" from a text prompt. If it's installed, ntsysv will give you a simple curses interface that you can use to turn stuff like that on and off... if a service is not in the list, you still need to install the package that provides the service. Telnet may not be a default package any more.

Seriously, though - you should consider ditching ftp and telnet, they are obsolete since that box will support ssh and sftp which do not transmit your passwords in the clear like telnet and ftp do.

Teraterm is a nice ssh client for windows. Putty's another. And if you aren't using windows pretty much everything comes with ssh these days (hooray! Thanks OpenSSH team!).

how to enable FTP

I was able to telnet to the server using telnet and I know telnet is not the best way to access to the server remotely. My question is how can I enable FTP on the server so I can access FTP from the remote machine.

thanks

ashley75,

I merged your threads since you have already asked this once before. Lets try to keep the existing questions in the original threads you've created, to prevent from double posting and to keep the discussion in the same place.

Regards.

ashley75,

I've merged your threads once again. I would appreciate it if you would keep the existing discussion in the existing threads you've started. It makes it easier so we don't have threads on the same subject scattered across the forums.

As for your question, try performing something like this:

rpm -qa | grep *ftp*

This should search your RPM database for any related packages that have FTP in the name..
