What distro are you using? The older ones have /etc/inetd.conf, the newer use xinetd , /etc/xinetd.d/telnet . But wait allowing your telnet logins - it is most insecure method to login remotely to your box, a basic sniffer can sniff all the traffic coming through telnet session, my suggestion - use SSH http://www.openSSH.org

Telnet

I have A friend who can setup my box corectly but I need to give him access to do it. I cant get telnet to work I realy dont want to deal with something else. I am beyond frustrated and ready to wipe linux off completly. The complexity of this os is beyond anything I expected. Ok back to telnet I cant seem to ping the unic box within my network I know something is not right. I can get on the internet with it fine but can ping it from my Win machine on the same network.

Do you ping by IP or hostname? Also it is sort of networking question you should've post it in the linux-networking forum here, but as it says in the rules if you don't know where to post post in linux-general. So, back to the question, we'll need to know how did you setup networking?

Can you tell us how you setup telnet in your /etc/inetd.conf ?? And I do believe RH 7.1 does use the xinetd.conf instead...

Its been awhile but try typing setup at a command and check to see if you have a services option to specify to use telnet on the machine.. ??

I have telnet working now I had to dhcp my box not my goal but it works.

The OS is just new to me and it is taking some time to learn to get around

Thanks for the help
