telnet problem


Hi,

I am using Ubuntu 7.10. For zebra, when I checked whether telnet is working or not,

> telnet localhost
Trying 127.0.0.1...
telnet : Unable to connect to remot host : Connection refused


Then to be sure, I made "sudo apt-get install inetutils-telnetd", I got the following! I need to install latest version of Ubuntu? Or I missed something? Any help would be much appreciated. ^-^

Usually if you get 404 errors from apt, you can resolve them by running 'sudo apt-get update'. See the man page 'man apt-get' for more info on what update does. You should then be able to install the telnet daemon.

maya_asagao:

you don't telnet your own localhost, what for? 127.0.0.0. and 127.0.0.1 are a universal convention assigning these numbers to your own machine. however, you may telnet your gateway router or your external broadband modem. usually these subnet hosts have subnet ip's like 192.168.1.1 this is usually your gateway or modem or that of 192.168.254.254 depending on the modem you have. try issue "ifconfig -a" to have read your subnet state, if it returns your gateway then you can try telnet and play with that.

for telnet manual enter --$ man telnet <Enter>
read the manual how to play with that
it seems you are using this for the school homework right?

goodluck.

Thanks for the information. I have already tried apt-get update. The output is as follows.

I am trying zebra. In its documentation, it uses `telnet localhost` to connect to the zebra daemon via telnet protocol. In fact, before configuring zebra, I am just checking telnet is working or not.

Thanks for your kindness. Since I am not good at linux, i cant figure out that it is due to ubuntu version or I missed smt when apt-get install/update gives errors.

Although telnet problem isnt fixed, I will have tons of questions about configuring zebra after telnet is fine. ;D

regards,
maya
