getting telnet/ftp to work on Linux SSH box
Posted on 2002-04-04
I am really frustrated. I have a RH Linux box 7.x, which is running SSH. I have been trying to get data off this box using ssh from my local machine (cygwin), but I'm getting nowhere. I'm entering my username/password correctly, but it won't accept it, it keeps prompting me for a password.
So now, I'm trying to get telnet/ftp to work on this box. I've gone into /etc/xinetd.d/telnet and /etc/xinetd.d/wu-ftpd to turn on these. They already have disable=no on them, yet when I stop/restart xinetd, neither telnet nor ftp works. I've tried disabling and shutting off ssh, but even though the service shuts down, I still can't get telnet/ftp to work or ssh when it's on.
I need to get data off, and I'm very frustrated. Can someone please help me?
