Is there another way of remote administering of my server instead of Telnet?

use SSH instead.. it provides an "encrpyted" telnet session and system admins are strongly encouraged to use SSH instead of Telnet which is clear text.

A free open-source version can be found at:

The latest OpenSSH package for Red Hat can be found at:

Yes, there is an ssh client & server available from RedHAT, but they are only furnished for 7.0 and later. It isn't too much of a problem to get OpenSSH running on a 6.2 system, but you'll have the most success if all of the applicable RedHat 6.2 updates have been applied. I can furnish, on request by email to, a spiffy script that takes most of the pain out out the update process. With the system current, OpenSSL 9.5a will be there and you can download the OpenSSH sources from, unpack them and configure/build/install ssh. I just did that this weekend to a couple of RAQ's and had no problems with getting ssh running.
