telnet: Unable to connect to remote host: Connection refused


Hello

I am trying to install Data Protector agent on one of the red hat linux box. For that I need port 5555 open on this server.

serverA:/#telnet lxbox 5555
Trying...
telnet: Unable to connect to remote host: Connection refused

I have added following line in /etc/services
omni 5555/tcp # DATA-PROTECTOR

given HUP signal to xinetd, but still same error. Can anyone help.

thanks
ranerk

Welcome to LinuxQuestions.

The /etc/services file is only a list that maps ports and protocols to service names. You need to enable the service by modifying the omni file located in /etc/xinetd.d. Change disable=yes to disable=no and restart xinetd.

also you "should" be using ssh
telnet dose NOT support any security
