N00B... Telnet Start


I know that u are all going to say dont use telnet... but i just want to get it running!

I chcked yast and it says its installed.... but i cant find a way of starting it... its been a while since i used linux..... (im using suse 9.0)..

But im sure when i was useing redhat that i could just go to init.d and do ./telnet start

Telnet is a service under xinet.d (most likely) or inet.d, depending on your system.

You should find it under '/etc/xinet.d/' (most likely) or '/etc/inet.d/'.

You will need to edit the file and set 'disable = yes' to 'disable = no', then restart xinet.d or inet.d using '/etc/init.d/xinet.d restart' or 'etc/init.d/inet.d restart'.

Yes, telnet is not worth the risk, SSH is much safer and is also a service ran under xinet.d.

Enjoy.

Do you have a xinet.d directory in '/etc/'?

If so use:

---
# default: on
# description: The telnet server serves telnet sessions; it uses \
# unencrypted username/password pairs for authentication.
service telnet
{
flags = REUSE
socket_type = stream
wait = no
user = root
server = /usr/sbin/in.telnetd
log_on_failure += USERID
disable = no
}

---

You will need to change '/usr/sbin/in.telnetd' to where your in.telnetd is located. To find it use 'locate telnet', then find the correct binary.

Enjoy.

P.S. You might need to install the telnet package from your install disks (see distro instructions on installing packages)
