redhat 7.1 can't access ftp, telnet server from remote hosts

telnetd and ftptd have been installed properly.
'telnet localhost' works. but when trying to access ftp or telnet server, the error message'connection refused' appears.

network connection has been checked. No problem.

hosts.allow and hosts.deny files are empty.

what should i do?

BTW: You've got two copies of this question you can as the Community support folks to delete the other one and save yourself some points.

Assuming that you are trying to access telnet and/or FTP services on this box from another, the problem is likley to be that you took the default firewall configuration when 7.1 was installed. In that case you need to either modify the firewall rules to permit inbound telnet and FTP traffic, or disable the firewall entirely. The later can be done with:

# chkconfig --level 2345 ipchains off
# chkconfig --level 2345 iptables off

That will prevent the firewall from starting at the next boot, and you can kill the running firewall with:

# /etc/init.d/ipchains stop
# /etc/init.d/iptables stop
