Hi,

I just got my new iMac installed with my OS X. But, it is not the OS X server. My question is "Can I installed Telnet server on that machine", just like what I did on the Linux? " Can I do that? If so, can you give me the step by step instruction?

Many Thanks,

If you mean enabling people to telnet into the machine, sure. In fact that feature is already there, you just have to turn it on. Open your Sharing control panel, click on the Application tab, and check the Allow remote login box.

Actually, the "Allow remote login" checkbox turns on the ssh daemon, not the telnet daemon. Of course, that's what should be used - ssh is "secure shell", something which telnet is _not_.

However, if you really need telnet, you can enable it by editing the "/etc/inetd.conf" file, and removing the comment in front of "telnet stream [...]". Then send inetd a HUP signal. To be able to do this, you must be root (eg. by using sudo).
