FTP nor Telnet work
I have a recently installed RH7.1 system and I cannot get the simplest networking features to work. I have Windows 2000 running on another machine. About all I can do is ping in both directions.
I was expecting an FTP daemon to be running on RH7.1 but it is not. xinetd is running and for some reason the configuration for every single service has the disable attribute set to yes.
I've tried setting it to 'no' for ftpd but it makes no difference. When I try FTP from the W2K machine I get the following:
> ftp: connect :Connection reset by peer
I've also tried running the ftpd daemon directly - it doesn't run for long and simply logs a syslog message, i.e.
Myhost ftpd: getpeername ((null)): Socket operation on non-socket.
Similarly, if I try to start the telnet daemon from the command line I get
telnetd: getpeername: Socket operation on non-socket.
I've tried the above after stopping xinetd but it makes no difference.
TCP/IP is set up as follows:
