Telnet RedHat


My friend has windows xp and linux mandrake installed and from the windows cmd prompt he can write telnet mandrake, and access his account on mandrake and edit his files. I have win xp and linux redhat installed on my pc, how can i access my linux account from the cmd? (I tried telnet redhat. but it didn't work). Thanks

telnetd is probably not running, the daemon that controls this. You can edit this by usually editing the files in /etc/xinetd but I would not suggest using telnet, its insecure, look into and use ssh, its more secure.

If you have Linux and windows on the same computer (one physical computer), you can't use telnet (or SSH) to access one from the other.
To use Telnet or SSH, you need two computers (one with Linux and the other with windows).

If you want to access your Linux partition from windows, your can use Explore2fs

If you want to access winXP (NTFS partition), you need to install the NTFS support modules.

If winXP is installed on a FAT32 partition, simply mount it.
