httpd and telnet


Hi there
I have installed httpd and telnet-server on RHEL5 standalone machine.
Normally when i install these services they work once i

edit /etc/xinetd.d/telnet
disable = no

start httpd and xinetd services ..

#chkconfig --level 345 httpd on
#chkconfig --level 345 xinetd on

#service httpd start
#service xinetd start

all this is working. no errors in messages log file
also no errors in access log and error log files

the rhel5 is on DHCP 192.168.1.169
from .169
i can ping the router at 192.168.1.1
i can ping the winxppro at 192.168.1.141
i can ping my vmware RHEL5 on winxppro at 192.168.1.133

and i can ping vise versa

i have telnetd and httpd working on .133
the fresh install is giving problem

i appreciate all the help

"giving problem"?? this is the point where you actually tell us what the problem is. are the services listening on those ports (netstat -plnt) is there a firewall?

Why are you using telnet? Don't. SSH has been around for a long time, there is very seldom and valid reason to use telnet in the 21st century.

You've still not told us what the problem is. If something is affecting both services that would usually suggest something generic about the network - firewall, routing etc.

Can you prove it with netstat output as root? do they work locally on the machine? where are you testing from?

yes i only have root user on that machine.
physically sitting on it is only way i can test it so
i checked it by #netstat and it shows 80 and 23 as they are suppose to be.
sitting on that machine i can ping out or telnet into my vmware rhel5 machine that is on winXP.

and this machine is a fresh install so i have no clue whats wrong. this is frist time i did install RHEL in text mode.

From the .133 machine try
- telnet localhost 23 and telnet localhost 80 . If you get a response, it means services are running fine on that system.
- check if firewall is enabled - iptables -L . If its enabled you'll need to figure out how to open up ports on that system.

please don't say "it's as it is supposed to be" please show us ACTUAL and REAL output. We don't know if you're reading it correctly or not.
