telnet


Hi,

trying to telnet my fedora 2 server from my windows machine and having trouble. I have the firewall on both pc allowing all communication from withing the range of our internal network.. so any machine can freely move about one another. However, i cant seem to connect via telnet to my server. I have port 23 also open on my firewall,router, but still no go.

any clue what i should do?

thanks

first of all, i wouldn't use telnet.... use SSH. Second of all, you have to make sure the daemon is running on the computer first... run 'setup' at a command prompt, then select 'system services' and make sure sshd is selected then... run /etc/init.d/sshd start
at the windows end... download 'putty'

trust me... it's alot safer to use ssh than telnet
