Telnet to a Linux virtual machine

VMware 5.5.3, Windows XP Pro, Fedora Core 6

I have set up a Fedora Core 6 vmware guest on a Windows host using vmware 5.5.3.

What I want to be able to do is start the linux guest and then be able to telnet to that linux guest from my windows machine.  I am a linux/vmware newbie and don't know all the things to do for networking.  I would like the vmware linux guest to have a static ip that does not change.  I also need to be able to access a website that is on this guest machine.

I didn't install any of the firewall or ESLinux stuff for tighet security.  I did try to telnet to localhost on the linux machine, and that connection was rejected.  

Can anyone give me some pointers or some "good" steps on how to do this.  If i have the wrong area, can someone point me to the correct area to post this to.

What do these commands show you on Linux?

ifconfig -a

netstat -nr

Also do you have a telnet daemon service active on Linux?

Hi,

Normally telnet is not used anymore but ssh which is a better option.  However, if you want to still use telnet, do this:

1) Install krb5-workstation (and other dependcies):
# yum install krb5-workstation

2) Enable krb5-telnet by editing /etc/xinetd.d/krb5-telnet and change the disable = yes to disable = no

3) Restart xinetd:
# service xinetd restart
