Install Telnet server on Fedora core 4

Hello,

I am using Linux Fedora core 4. I want to use Telnet in place of SSH. Now I want to install Telnet server on this Linux Server. I downloaded telnet-server-0.17-35.i386.rpm file and install and received the errors as follows:
   [root@SaigonBank sources]# rpm -i telnet-server-0.17-35.i386.rpm
        error: Failed dependencies:
        xinetd is needed by telnet-server-0.17-35.i386

What does it mean and what should i do next?

Thanks

Install xinetd.  Do you have yum installed and setup?  If so they try:

     yum -y install telnet-server-0.17-35.i386

Why do you want telnet?  It is unsecure and I beleive that anything you can do with telnet you can do with ssh.

Hello,

I use Telnet in place of SSH because i don't want to use third-party ssh client. I only want to use Windown command to access to Telnet server.

Do you know hot to use cmd program in window to access SSH in Fedora core 4?

Thanks.

I know you said you did not want to use thrid party ssh client, but you can get putty for Windows as a free ssh client or you can use Cygwin (also free) under Windows and use its ssh client.  With Cygwin you can also install XWindows and use XWindows based applications.

Have you customized yum yet?  You may want to follow they yum section:

I use Cygwin with ssh and XWindows support.  I can ssh into a Linux box and then remotely run GNOME or KDE.

Putty is fantastic - even if you wanted to use telnet, use putty - the windows telnet is awful.  That aside, I completely agree - don't use telnet unless you WANT people to know your password - everything in telnet is transmitted in clear text whereas everything transmitted in SSH is encrypted.

In Linux Fedora core 4, go to Services management , start the xinetd and telnet services on the server..

Now just try to telnet to the Linux Fedora core 4 machine from any PC...

saurabh_dua: Re-read is original post.  When he attemped to install telnet it told him that he needed xinetd.  This means that it is not installed.  He can't start something that is not installed.
