Unable to telnet to Linux Host inspite of installing telnet-server RPM - Need Help
Have to enable telnet on the Linux host. Installed telnet-server-0.17-37 RPM on the host.
The /etc/xinetd.d/telnet file has the following :
# default: on
# description: The telnet server serves telnet sessions; it uses \
# unencrypted username/password pairs for authentication.
flags = REUSE
socket_type = stream
wait = no
user = root
server = /usr/sbin/in.telnetd
log_on_failure += USERID
disable = no
But when I try to connect to this host, I get "Connection closed by foreign host" message.
Can you please guide me if I am missing some information or some configuration.
Your guidance is highly appreciated.
