apt-get install


I did a "apt-get install telnetd" Everything seemed to go ok. Now i should be able to configure telnet in what process? Also i downloaded a program called cygwin but how to do make a connection instance so i can after configured to my telnet server. Maybe apt-get install telnetd is not a server side telnet?

If you install a new daemon in Debian it is usually started automatically. Command 'ps aux | grep telnetd' will tell you if it is running. In this case it might well be policy NOT to start it, as it is a big security risk, if the PC is accessible from the internet.

You should be able to start it yourself with '/etc/init.d/telnetd start'.

There may be a README in /usr/share/doc/telnetd/ which will tell you more.

Is there a reason you don't just use SSH / sshd ? it's the default and much more secure.

Security risk

Im aware of the security risk we have it installed on some oracle test servers at work. They are in our LAN so but i need to learn real quick a tool to move over a script files from a windows box to the server running unix, and we connect via telnet

Could i ssh into it even though it accepts telnet?

ssh will typically give you scp and/or sftp access, which makes it simple to transfer files to the machine.

You would have to try connecting with ssh to see if it's active.

to connect with ssh from windows you would use putty (also a nice telnet client btw..) and use winscp to transfer files using a nice gui.
