Telnet Server Install/Config on Red Hat 9


I need to set up a telnet server on a Red Hat Linux 9 box. I've gotten it working great several times with 7.x series fine but 9 seems to be a different beast. Is it because the rpm does not install by default? I have spent many hours with no luck.

I have heard the warnings about using telnet. This box will be behind a hafrdware firewall and only about 3 trusted IP's will ever be able to see the box. I am in a beggers can't be choosers situation so I don't have any choice of using SSH instead.

Is there an A-Z fool proof tutorial somewhere on how to get it to work? Thanks in advance for any help!

FTP works fine. It is telnet that I am having trouble with.

maybe see if you did everything in the second reply.

basically make sure telnetd is set to run at boot and that you've configured your firewall (if you use one).

I do not find telnetd on my system anywhere. the command "find / -name telnetd" turns up nothing. "rpm -qa|grep telnetd" also turns up no results. Should I assume I need to install an rpm to even begin? If so, does anyone know the name of the telnetd rpm that will work with Red Hat 9?

well the easiest way in red hat, is to open up your service configuration and see if telnet is in there. if i remember correctly, installing telnet-server puts telnet-server in the service configuration to run at boot, but is disabled by default. plus, you can't start/restart telnet-server like you can for something like smb (at least those buttons for me were disabled) so it looks like you need to reboot to activate the daemon. if you go to rpmfind.net, and do an index by name, look for telnet-server maybe instead of telnetd since telnet-server is contributed by red hat themselves. the version is an older version though. i'm sure using telnet-server would be easy to get working.
