This didn't work.

Can someone please tell me, from start to finish, how to enable telnet and ftp access on a fresh fedora core 2 install?

Please stop telling me to use ssh. I got that working. Like Mike said, this is on a trusted network and I don't care about encryption.

look for the configuration file in /etc/xinetd.d/

U'll get telnet & tftp file in this directory edit this file and make
>>"disable" option to "No" in both the files.

run service again >> service xinetd start
this all have to be done with root credentials ..

and one more thing ,i belive you know that telnet via root user is
not allowed.

Hope this will solve your problem ..

Have you looked at the RedHat FTP documentation for RHEL?

I have -- that tutorial is for setting up RHEL's vsftp server. Not the raw telnet and ftp I was looking for.

Thanks, though .

ssh is very nice, but on a network of two computers it is unnecessary. As another member mentioned it adds overhead. But, that wasn't your question at all :P

If you want to have ftp and telnet available you need to set up a client-server environment. Usually ftp and telnet will be in /etc/inetd.conf . Just edit it by commenting or uncommenting out what you need or dont need. (# comments out [ignored]). Also did you install ftp? Proftpd and vsftpd are included in many distros and are the best and most popular. It doesn't matter much, but for your purposes i would go with vsftpd. Either one will work.
