Hello! I am trying to configure a telnet server but I am unable to have any client connect to it over telnet. I am only using telnet because I am unable to use SSH at the moment and there are no external connections to the network with all the machines that want to telnet to another network.
I first started with creating hosts.allow and hosts.deny.
In hosts.allow I have
And in hosts.deny I have
ALL EXCEPT in.telnetd: ALL
Can anyone tell me if I have this setup correctly?
I also tried configuring pam thinking it would play some role with telnet connections. I've changed my /etc/pam.d/other file to have it be similar to the SSHD file. So it looks like
auth required pam_shells.so
auth required pam_nologin.so
auth include system-auth
account include system-auth
password include system-auth
session include system-auth
However I am starting to think that telnet is not affected by pam because even with this configuration a connection with telnet can not still be made.I have also looked into possibilities of SElinux blocking connections but I am unable to find any traces of the security enchancements on the machine. Any ideas as to why this is not connecting?
