Telnet to debian machine


Hi,

How can I set my configuration so that I can do a telnet to my debian machine using another machine, also using Windows machine?. If I try to use telnet to my machine I always get that the connection is refused by the remote machine. I have no proble if I do a telnet to another machine using my machine. Because sometimes I need to work on my machine from another windows machine.

Thank you for your help.....

You probably don't have telnet installed. Try using ssh it is much more secure and more likely to be installed.

Hi, thank you for your reply.

Can I use ssh on standard windows machine to access my machine? I mean I only have telnet program in the windows, because the access to the computer is very limited. I already have ssh on my computer.

I also have tried to install telnetd, but I can't find any telnetd script under the directory /etc/init.d. Or should I set any configuration files to make the telnetd start?

Thank you.

Telnetd is controlled by inetd. You have to edit /etc/inetd.conf to enable it. But you should stick to the advice that was given; use ssh. You can pickup an ssh client for windows to connect to your linux box. Putty is a popular one.

I agree. Get putty for ssh, you don't want telnet. It's ok on your lan but if you ever use it on the internet ssh is encrypted and secure, telnet is not.

Putty is free and work excellent.
