Cannot connect via telnenet or ftp (Mandrake/Xinetd)
I cannot connect remotely or locally to my Mandrake Linux 9.1 with xinetd box via telnet or ftp.
# chkconfig --list telnet
# grep disable /etc/xinetd.d/telnet
disable = no
I don't have any sort of firewall or filtering system.
I have checked /etc/hosts.deny and /etc/hosts.allow
I have been tinkering with xinetd.conf and the services are clearly enabled. After I make changes, I always # killall -USR1 xinetd
I have read in a previous post that somebody's problem in this situation was: "/etc/xinited/telnet & vsftps files did not have an extra blank line at the files." Do you know what he was speaking of?
