I'm using a linux server, but i want to access the linux system through telnet . I try to login using a normal user but it gives incorrect login. I checked for inet services also but helpless. After four attempts it gives connection timed out. If any body can solve the problem it will be greatful to u all. Pls send me the reply to this mail id email@example.com
I am using RedHat Linux 6.1... I checked out the inetd.conf file also... still when i connect to telnet from remote...connection timedout.. but sometime it connects and asks for login and passwd. I enter it..but after few minutes..it again gives connection to host lost.
It seems that you have not added your ip address in the Linux server, so you are getting the timeout, as well as I hope you are getting the logging prompt also after a long delay--- right ?
go to the Linux server and login by root
run the "netconf" command
then you will get so many option like shown below :
