Which do I need to edit?


Hello.

I'm makeing dedicated server game machines.
OS: RedHat 8.0

I'm going to a lan-party in a week were I'll test my servers.
I will need to enter my new IP details like new gateway, ip, dhcp.
Which file do I need to enter and in which path is it?
I also need to remote my pc.
I know this can be done by telnet, but which file do I need to edit to enable the telnet server? and in what path is it?

Hope someone will respond to my questions.

As root you can configure your network using
netconfig
Then restart networking
/etc/init.d/network restart

and to enable telnet run
ntsysv
Select telnet from the list then run
/etc/init.d/xinetd restart

I need to start the telnet server as soon as it boots to linux.
Because I'll put my server in a rack.
I do not have a keyboard/mouse/monitor there.
I do can configure it before putting it into the rack.
Do you know how to set it so that telnet auto-starts?

Telnet will start automatically if it has a * next to it when you run ntsysv. If you want to prove it is working without a reboot restart xinetd. If you don't restart xinetd it will not work until xinetd is started on the next boot.
