Linux and Telnet


I have been asked to set up a Linux box to Telnet into. (I am very new to Linux) We have a Win2k server and 20 workstations. I have installed RedHat 7.2 on a box and set it up as a server. I assigned an IP address of 192.168.0.254. I can ping that addy from the workstations if the network cable is attached to the Linux box. I cannot Telnet into the machine. How do I set up Telnet, or where can I find a good help file on how to do this. I have been serching the web for an answer, yet it alludes me. <frustration> Muchos Gracias

install the rpm's from the rh72 cd's, and edit the 'disable = yes' line in /etc/xinetd.d/telnet, then '/etc/init.d/xinetd restart'

Should I change the 'disable = yes' line to 'disable = no' ? Also what should I change in the '/etc/init.d/xinetd restart'

I am very new to Linux. Where can I read up on this stuff? Malta Grazie.

well.. if you don't want it disabled, disable = no seems to be a logical thing to do!

i meant just run

/etc/init.d/xinetd restart
