Changing Telnet startup type to automatic


Hi

I have users that log in to our linux server using telnet. Just yesterday out of the blue, the Telnet services would automatically stop, and so I have to log in through ssh to manually start the telnet services in order for users to log in.

Thanks in advance.

*I am a linux newbie, and have taken from a guy that left abruptly so Im still trying to teach myself cmds.

I can't find any question, any problem, just a story. How can we help you? (by the way, you should not use telnet at all, ssh is much better and more secure).

Sorry. I meant to ask, is there was a way to change the Startup type of the Telnet services from cmd?

probably yes, but it depends on the OS you have and also would be nice to check what's happened.

OS is Redhat Ent Linux 6.1 .. Im still trying to work my way around finding out what broke it, we had a power outage which caused a unplanned shutdown, which may be a contributing factor.
My main focus right now is trying to fix the telnet services, so I dont need to go in and start the telnet services manually every time a user wants to log on.
