Telnet problem and localhost


I have got FC2, I want to telnet to local host, I login as root and I issued this command:

# telnet 197.227.165.150
Trying 197.227.165.150
telnet: connect to address 197.227.165.150: connection refused

What should I configure to allow telnet to the local host.

If rylan76's suggestion does not work check if you have a telnet daemon running. But why do you want to use telnet to localhost? Or telnet at all?

Regards.

ps aux should view all the processes running, you can use grep to easily find your telnet daemon.

I see that you have posted this in wireless networking but you should know that when you telnet to 127.0.0.1 the traffic will only to got the loopback interface, which has nothing to do with your wlan interface.
Can you please clarify what exactly you are trying to do?

What I ment was that this is for *wireless* and telnetting to localhost has nothing to do with wireless connections since it just issues the loopback interface. I would post this in the network forum but that does not matter, let's get back to the discussion, shall we?

Do you actually have a telnet daemon installed and running on your box? Cause if you don't, then you won't be able to connect to it via telnet.

I guess you have sshd running though, so you should be able to use ssh localhost and connect to it, but still I do not know what you are out to do so maybe you need to use telnet and not ssh.

Regards.
