please forgive me for asking stupid questions.
But in any case I cannot Telnet nor FTP into my Linux box from windows
Connecting To 10.1.0.156...Could not open connection to the host, on port 23.
No connection could be made because the target machine actively refused it.
My guess is the telnet and FTP deamon are iether not strted nor configured Properly
here is what i did
It returns merely a blank line - what do I need to do to make inetd run
(shouldn't it be running by default? Since This is pretty well a vanilla installation of Mandrake 8.2
Ports 21 and 23 are not active nor open
Active Internet connections (servers and established)
Proto Recv-Q Send-Q Local Address Foreign Address State
tcp 0 0 0.0.0.0:139 0.0.0.0:* LISTEN
Also from the linux box i did telnet 127.0.0.1
and my connection is refused
I have also installed the packages using the GUI tools for ftp and telent Deamon but no luck.
So my question is this
How can i verify that the telnet daemon and FTp daemon are installed properly? and How would i start
the Telnet and FTP deamon?
Oh and one last thing
hosts.allow and deny do not have any entries in them.
Thanks in adnvace
