How to enable telnet in redhat enterprise 5


Dear All,
I am using redhat enterprise 5(32 Bit) and i just want to enable the telnet. When i checked in the services it was not there then i downloaded the rpm package from the internet(telnet-server-3.0-owl3.i686.rpm). But i am not able install the package. Can anyone tell me is it the wright package for my 32 bit system and tell me is there any dependencies required to install this and also tell me exact command to install the rpm. Thanks in Advance.

don't don't don't don't don't don't don't don't don't don't don't don't don't don't don't don't do this.

But if you REALLY have to, it's probably not up as it's disabled by default (and it should stay disabled, don't use it) in /etc/xinetd.d/telnet. If you want an insecure system, enable it there.

the old RHEL5 has telnet installed but turned OFF ( or not installed and in the RHN repo )
just not ON by default ( it is a VERY VERY huge security hole )

it sounds like you do NOT have the required software support license
-- it is REQUIRED
And if you have to ask the Standard 1 year is what you NEED
the Desktop license
https://www.redhat.com/apps/store/desktop/
the server license
https://www.redhat.com/apps/store/server/


if this IS a paid for RHEL install try this
Code:
su -
yum search telnet
---- if listed -----
yum install telnet
but it should be installed and NOT used unless you MUST

ssh is the recommended tool



or
install one of the FREE rebuilds of RHEL
CentOS 6.3
or
ScientificLinux 6.3
BUT if you MUST, really MUST ,use the old 5 series
install CentOS 5.8
or SL 5.8
