Can't connect to Telnet server on Mandrake 10
I have installed and enabled Telnet server on Mandrake 10 on VMware4. When I try to telnet from a Windows machine, it tried for a while and died. When I tried to Telnet from a Cisco Router, it says Connection Closed by Foreign host.
I did a netstat and see the following.
It looks like my Windows telnet client reaches the Linux machine. For some reason, the Linux server is waiting for someting. -- tcp 0 0 computername:telnet w2wz3n9v
