telnet server?


Is there any telnet server software out on the net? or is it included in RH7.2?

telnet daemons (as well as many other servers) are standard programs in linux (probably all distros). Redhat has all that already - however telnet is a bad idea, as it handles all sessions unencrypted and is thus highly hackable. If you want to allow remote login then use ssh - it's just like telnet except that it's encrypted. Be sure to get the patched ssh tho, as 3x (i think) are vulnaerable to overflow allowing root compromise .

Question how do I do that?

Hey that sounds great...I've been trying to get telnet service started (I don't know how) but if sshd is more secure I'll do it. So I've got my sshd service started as per your command line but how do I call it from another machine to start a connection?

you mean how do you USE ssh? well it's just "ssh somewhere" read teh manpage for sh, assuming you have it installed of course.

Well what I really meant was "Is there a windows client for ssh" IE How do I initiate a ssh connection from a windows machine? For example, with telnet, it's just C:\telnet hostname.

Go for PuTTY. It's the best I've seen.

While SSH is the preferred way to "telnet" (and even FTP), if you want true telnet (plaintext), you'll have to edit the file /etc/xinetd.d/telnet and change the line that says "disabled = yes" to "disabled = no". Finally, you'll have to restart the XInetd metadaemon to activate the changes as root:

# service xinetd restart

I second that!

I like PuTTY because it's not just an SSH client. It's a full SSH client suite (ssh, scp and sftp). It also supports certificate-based authentication, and has a lot of nifty little features (such as X forwarding).
