anyone can break it down for me.
A. Use SSH instead of telnet. Telnet is an old, insecure protocol that is being phased out. Run this command and you will be set:
rpm -ivh http://mirror.cs.wisc.edu/pub/mirrors/linux/redhat/9/en/os/i386/RedHat/RPMS/vsftpd-1.1.3-8.i386.rpm
rpm -ivh http://mirror.cs.wisc.edu/pub/mirro...6/RedHat/RPMS/openssh-server-3.5p1-6.i386.rpm
You will probably have dependencies but you should be able to find the packages here: http://rpmfind.net
This is assuming that you have RH9. From there it is a matter of simply editing config files.
red hat 8, but will install 9 in near future, thanks for everything man
well, i'm a newbie to linux...used it for like a week
supposedly i got a webserver up at http://188.8.131.52:8080/
but i'm not sure if it werks
now, my next instruction is to install and configure
telnet and an ftp server...so that my supervisor can log in and configure the site...today is like the deadline so i'm fucked.
I will install the ssh server later, but now just need the simple old telnet for now.
well, i dl the rpm package...missing like 4 dependencies....ok let say i dl them, do i put them in the same directory for it to work? a noobie man.
well, i think i got telnet already pre-installed, not sure though.
any command to test it out?
if you can connect then you have it installed. I am not sure if it comes preinstalled or not. I think if it is it is run through xinted. So look at the stuff in /etc/xinted and see if there is any mention of telnet.
Oh and for installing dependencies just put all the stuff in the same dirrectory and intsall them all at once.
rpm -ivh package1.rpm pakcage2.rpm package3.rpm
You'd have to try pretty hard to install Linux without Telnet...
I was trying to decided whether or not it was enabled by default. Which I higly doubt.
Telnet is unencrypted, so if you've already used it to to login to your machine remotely, you should consider your account's pwd compromised because someone could have sniffed it. Change the pwd, disable telnetd, and switch to ssh.
Very easily compromised.
Most likely Telnet is shut off. You need to start the daeman in order to get it up and running. The same for FTP.
I think they are telnetd and ftpd that you need to start.
