    setting up telnet and ftp server for RH8.0 ?


    i am trying to setup telnet and ftp servers

    by going to

    server settings - services - service configuration

    but i cant telnet or ftp from a windows pc.

    my red hat linux ip address is 192.168.0.1

    my windows 98 ip address is 192.168.0.2

    How about ssh? Read about it's superior capabilities at http://openssh.org It's quite the thrill!
    Two things have come out of Berkeley, Unix and LSD.
    It is uncertain which caused the other.

    Try running ssh. Unlike ftp and telnet, ssh is secure and _not_ obsolete.

    If you are sure you want to run telnet and FTP ( instead of ssh), then try:

    netstat -tap

    to see if the ftp and telnet demons are listening. If they aren't, look in /etc/inetd.conf and make sure these services aren't commented out. Then try:

    ps -ax

    to find the process number of inetd, then:

    kill -HUP (that process number)

    BTW, If RH is running xinetd, forget most of what I just told you. I can't help you.

    SSH is on the RedHat CDs, just search for openssh. You need to install the openssh-server package to accept incoming connections from machines to remotely access your computer.

    Have you tried The Linux Documentation Project for information and How-Tos on setting up telnet and ftp? There's plenty of information on the web about doing these trivial things.

    i've tried the The Linux Documentation Project - downloaded 4 or 5 how-tos but did not find any answers.

    they dont have any online pages regarding this.


    i also have the openssh server running.


    I don't know anything about this,

    And a big thank you in advance!
