Problem with telnet


When I try to open a telnet session i am getting an error saying that the connection is being refused.

Does anyone know what I need to do to enable this feature in Red Hat 8.0

Thanks in advance.
Erik

use http://openssh.com instead, forget about telnet. if you want to be really insecure you can still use telnet by enablnig it in /etc/xinetd.d/telnet, but you should avoid it if possible. also telnet serber are installed by defautl normally, so you'd need to install it.

Chris I would rather use openSSH instead if that is the no brainer way to go (which it sounds like it is)

Where do I enable it?

For telnet, you need inetd running.

install the rpms from your distro cd and then just start it with "service sshd start" there are probably a couple of rpms you'll want, openssh for teh core libraries and openssh-server for the business end of the server. there's also the openssh-client package from using ssh as s user.

and redhat stopped using inet a long time ago, that's why xinet is there
