I would like to setup a telnet server on my Linux (Redhat 7.3) box, and was wondering what I needed to do to set it up. I know I should use SSH, but the Linux box is only in my network, so security isn't really an issue (let alone the issue of setting SSH up, too!).
I've read the man page on telnet (and a few google searches), and didn't see anything about the telnet server or daemon...do I need to download a package, or is it somewhere hidden in there?
Originally posted by Mathieu Since you are using Redhat 7.3, you should have an RPM called telnet-server-x.xx-xx (I don't remember the version) on your CDs.
I'll search the CD's for them, but the problem for me is when I install a package, I don't know enough about the directory structure to know where everything goes (or needs to go).
Also, the SSH server is as easy to install as Telnet, look for
I found the sshd program on my linux machine (under the /etc/log.d/scripts/services/ directory), but when I tried to install it (using SSH Server Installation , under Installing the SSH Server), when I tried the command /sbin/chkconfig --add sshd , it gave me the error "service sshd does not support chkconfig".
At this point, I'm not sure how to mount the CD drive and such, but I think that that's a quick search on google...I'll look for the packages on my CDs and install the telnet server package.
