I need to telnet to a Redhat 7.1 m/c from my Win2000 m/c both on the same LAN.
My problem is that when i say "telnet <ip>" in windows or use Putty, the linux machine isn't found, and putty reports connection reset by peer.
-> Pinging the machine is successful.
-> chkconfig --list shows " telnet
-> telnet localhost on the linux machine itself works flawlessly.
I think this may have something to do with security settings and firewalls. I have no clue on how to figure those out, so please be specific on what i should do.
To check if all incomming connections are rejected
-> i started apache web server. All http calls are rejected too. Server not found
-> i turned on the vnc server and tried using winVnc to connect to the machine but that was rejected too.
Thanks in advance for your solutions.
