a telnet question...
I had a friend show me this cool little telnet trick but i forgot how to do it.

This is what friend wanted to show me how to edit a text file. So he opened up telnet, then told me to open up telnet. He did some command and somehow I got a question of some sort to allow him to do something, and presto, i saw him typing on my telnet. Kinda like a vnc type thing, but it wasn't vnc. It was straight telnet usage.

Any ideas?

I remembered also, that we were telnetted on the same linux box.

You have the telnet server running on your Linux box.
If you want to turn it off, edit the /etc/xinetd.d/telnet file
and change disable = no to disable = yes

Then you will need to restart the xinetd service.

Perhaps he did a talk or write to your tty.
