Question enabling telnet and ftp


Hi All

I can telnet and ftp from a pc running Redhat 9.0 to other unix boxes but cannot find out how to allow remote telnet and ftp sessions onto the pc.

This is very easy on Solaris but the same config files do not appear to exist in Linux.

Can anyone offer help on this??

Telnet is usually run through xinetd so go into /etc/xinetd.d and open up the telnet file. There should be a line that says:

disable=yes

Change it to:

disable=no

Then you must restart xinetd for the changes to take effect.

As for ftp, it depends on what ftp server you are using.(wuftpd,vsftpd,proftpd) Usually there will be a startup script in /etc/init.d so to start vsftpd you would do:

/etc/init.d/vsftpd start

telnet is real crap with plain text passwd, you may want to try ssh instead.

you need a FTP server to log into your machine... RedHat come with some, or you may download new version (look for PureFtp, WuFtp and ProFtp on google)
