Question telnet and FTP


I am setting up a server to do nothing but handle FTP and Telnet. I am using RedHat 7.1 and it is refusing all teh connections from anywhere. I saw something in the beinging about a firewall and didnt choose one, so I assumed that it didnt install the firewall. Why would it be refusing all of these connections then?

If its going to do a lot of telnet and FTP then you will want to run your telnet/ftp daemons all the time, instead of having inetd start them each time someone attempts to connect. Just remove the ftp and telnet lines from /etc/inetd.conf and put those same lines in one of your startup scripts. Remember to restart inetd !

cheers.

Jamie,

#ntsysv will take care of that in Redhat 7.1 no extra steps needed.

How does it decide wether to let inetd run them or to fire them up as daemons and leave them running?

Wel, If I am not mistaken, all he wanted is to enable telnet and ftp and disable ipchains or iptables to allow connection. With command ntsysv, it will let him enable and disable services by selecting them checking or unchecking..that's all and next time he reboots services will remain as he selected whether on or off.

Correct. My original post in this thread wasn't a solution but just a comment, as if you leave inetd starting the ftp and telnet daemons each time someone wants to connect you're introducing an unnecessary overhead as the trade-off of saving memory by killing the daemon when its not in use isn't worth the additional overhead of starting it up again all the time.

As you replied saying that ntsysv would take care of this I was just wondering how it would decide what to run all the time, and what to let inetd start... clearly we're talking cross purposes!

Jamie...
