Problem regarding Telnet
Posted on 2003-03-05
I was going through all telnet questions and answers in this forum...but I have very basic problem is I can not find telnet under /etc/xinetd.d even though I have installed telent ...I can find it by using rpm -qa | grep telnet and it gives me telnet.0.17-20. I can find telnet under /usr/bin/telnet. So I copied this file to /etc/xinetd.d/telnet but now telnet is not working.Previously telnet used to work from my machine but any other windows machine would not be able to telnet my machine. I don't know what could be the problem.
Again on my system I can not find in.telnetd.
It is always with my system...I can not find installed softwares where they are supposedto be according to documentation. Same happened while configuring samba...as I could not find my files under /usr/local/samba I messed all the configuration and eventually I uninstalled it all.
Please tell me what could be the problem for telnet and if possible for samba also.
