Enable telnet in xinetd using chkconfig, get your box hacked simply by enabling telnet, reinstall OS, rinse, repeat...

Seriously, "chkconfig --levels 2345 telnet on" will turn it on, but it's not something you really want to do.  Is there a reason you've ruled out ssh?

Indeed - such a luxury is one of the nice things about linux

>i dont' have a static IP address.

Well, that's not much of an issue when you're discussing telnet vs ssh - ssh is just more secure (and it was probably installed by default, if you look around -  "updatedb ; locate ssh")

If you need to keep track of an often-changing external IP, you could use hamachi, gotomypc, dyndns, or any other service designed to help you with this.  An EE search would probably turn of some helpful advice already given to other experts.

Cheers,
