fedora core 6 : question about xinetd.d & telnet
Hi guys!

Please, i have two question about fedora core 6 , xinetd.d & telnet.

I've done an installation with no telnet service. But now for some reason, i need to start the service....but i've noticed that on FC6 there is no xinetd service.


1) why if on FC6 there is no xinetd service i have a dir called "/etc/xinetd.d" with files like "krb5-telnet" ?
what is the sense of that directory if xinetd is not installed??

2) if i want to have the telnet daemon running, how can i do ? ...i've noticed there is "/usr/kerberos/sbin/telnetd", but what is the correct way to put the service on?

Run chkconfig --list, and that will give you a list of all the services running on your server. At the very bottom of the output you will see all of the xinetd based services.
xinetd based services:
chargen-udp: off
chargen: off
cvs_pserver: on
cups-lpd: off
daytime-udp: off
daytime: off
echo-udp: off
echo: off
rexec: off
rlogin: on
rsh: on
rsync: off
services: off
sgi_fam: on
telnet: off
tftp: on
time: off
time-udp: off
To turn them on/off just type chkconfig telnet on.
Good luck.

I have no xinetd service installed, so none of the service in /etc/xinetd.d is listed out with "chkconfig --list"

You need this package....

#yum install telnet-server.i386

This will create the required telnet file in xinet.d folder.

Also check if this package is installed or not :
