Maybe you haven't started the telnet daemon on your server? A good tip, don't use telnet, as passwords are sent to the server in cleartext. use SSH instead. Also here you would have to make sure the daemon is running. On normal distros you start it with /etc/init.d/sshd start.

With linux 9 do you mean mandrake 9? Or Red-Hat 9.0? Or SuSE 9.0?

Telnet is disbabled by defualt in xinetd based Linux distros. For example on a Redhat 9 box you will need to edit the following file:

/etc/xinetd.d/telnet

and comment out the disbale line. After editing and saving the file you will need to restart xinetd. As mentioned above SSH is the nest route to go as Telnet trasmits usernames and passwords in plain text making user info very easily sniffable.

I should also mention that if the telnet file does not exist in /etc/xinetd.d directory the you have not even installed telnet. SSH is the best solution. Hope this helps.

Hi,

  For RedHat Linux 9, login as root
# service xinetd restart
# chkconfig telent on
Then you should be able to telnet into this RH9 box.
