Hello all. I will begin by saying I am just learning Linux, so any help that could be given would be greatly appreciated.
I just loaded SuSE 7.3 on an older system of mine. It runs great. KDE is a little slow, but overall it runs well.
I have a few books concerning networking with Linux, setting up security measures, etc.
I want to run Telnet on the Linux box, yet for some reason it is not working.
It is enabled in the inetd file and the services file in /etc.
I try to log into it from a Windows XP box on my network, and it says the server actively refused the connection. So I know the service is running, just not sure why it refuses me.
What am I doing wrong? My assumption is I need to set up an IP address (of the computer trying to log in) somewhere in another file, yet I am not sure which one, and the books are not very forthcoming. Any ideas?
Thanks for the help!
