telnet and ftp services inactived (after Mandrake 7.0 update)
Posted on 2000-04-04
I recently upgraded to Mandrake 7.0. During the
upgrade there's a question about what level of
security you can choose. The options are "low", "medium", and "high". I chose high, but afterwards discovered that medium is the recommended level.
Now, I can't telnet or ftp into my computer, even though inetd.conf contains the following 2 lines:
ftp stream tcp nowait root /usr/sbin/tcpd in.wuftpd -l -a
telnet stream tcp nowait root /usr/sbin/tcpd in.telnetd
When I try to ftp from another computer, I get:
Connected to <hostname>.
421 Service not available, remote server has closed connection
For telnet, it just fails to connect with:
Connected to <hostname>
Escape character is '^]'.
Connection closed by foreign host.
Any ideas where should I look to find the problem? Is something inactivated that should be activated?
