well if you have ftp running, you can use any type of ftp client to access your machine.
if you have telnet running.. turn it off and look into using ssh, its secure as telnet isn't and anything passed over network can be seen.
http, just make sure you have port 80 open and you should be fine..

oh.. run ifconfig eth0 to find your current ip address...

first run

setup

in a term or xterm

select System services

turn off telnet, turn on sshd

ok, quit


then run this to start sshd

/etc/rc.d/init.d/sshd start

adjust your firewall to allow port 22, and not 21

get putty or some other ssh client if you use windows

look at the other interface

You will likely have two network interfaces in your computer: one for the internal network (192.168.x.x) and one which is getting an IP assigned to it from the your cable provider's server. You want the latter one since that is the one on the "outside"

However you should forget about telnet right away. It's the equivalent of sending all your login passwords and whatnot around on post-it notes on the outside of envelopes. Grab SSH and install that. Encrypted terminal sessions are a must.

Also be aware that most cable ISPs block port 25 and 80 (and even 20/21) so you won't be able to run your mail, web and ftp servers on those standard ports. Many people flip web to 8000 and just use scp (secure copy, comes with ssh) or sftp (secure ftp) for their file transfer needs.

Um David?

Don't you mean turn off 23?

21 is used with port 20 for FTP.

Andrew

What other site for support?

IRC? While I do like LQ, I find it very tedious to try and help people in this web-based environment.

I've already put a request in to have paying-member-only NNTP or mailing-list based feeds. Us oldschool types prefer being able to see everything instead of being locked in to a single forum, single thread type of view. :-)

Regards,
Andrew
