problem with "telnet localhost 110"


hello,

every time i'm trying : telnet localhost 110

trying 127.0.0.1 ...

connected to localhost

escape character is '^'

*ok POP3 localhost.localdomain v2001.78rh server ready

EEr autologout;idle for too long

connection closed by foreign host .

while i've already set the disable option in the xinetd.d to no, and i've also restarted the xinetd.d.

i don't know how to debug this problem. my idea is to install a pop server.

Your questions is a bit unclear (for me, anyway).

Looking at what happens, all seems to be ok:

You are trying to telnet to a non telnet port (port 110 being pop3, port 23 being telnet).
If you telnet to port 110, you see that your pop3 answers. So both your telnet client and pop3 seem to be working.

What is it you want to accomplish??

If you want to be able to telnet to your own machine, install/activate the telnet daemon. Then you can telnet to your localhost (without specifying the port, it will default to 23, the telnet port).
