telnet - FAIL: telnet address from=15.8.29.14
 
Hi,

I'm trying to get telnetd working, so I can telnet to a machine. I changed the /etc/xinetd.d/telnetd file to the following:

service telnet
{
flags = REUSE
socket_type = stream
wait = no
user = root
server = /usr/sbin/in.telnetd
log_on_failure += USERID
disable = no
}

Then I restarted xinet and I was able to connect to telnetd, but it drops me with:

hplx0473 Kirk /local/home/kgruell $
-> telnet -l tripoli utah6063
Trying 15.98.5.14...
Connected to utah6063.
Escape character is '^]'.
Connection closed by foreign host.

I do not have a /etc/hosts.allow or /etc/hosts.deny file, which I seen many references to with other posts. I do have a machine that telnetd is working, and I do not see a difference in their setup.

Thanks in advance,

Kirk

Found the problem...
 
In xinetd.conf I had to comment out the line:

# only_from = localhost
