Telnet wont work but ftp will

Post by nei » Tue, 09 Apr 1996 04:00:00

I cannot get Telnet into my Linux box although FTP works fine.

I am running PPP from a PC using Windosck and Ewan. This config works
to another UNIX box. FTP works fine to the Linux box. Inetd appears to
be correctly configured.

If I try an Telnet to the loop back I actually get banner up but then
get the message:-

telnetd: ioctl(sctty): Operation not permitted

Connection closed by foreign host.

Any help would be useful.

I am using the Slackware 3 distribution.

Got it sorted.

I was running getty on the 'virtual' tty's such as ttyp0. I thought
you  needed to.

OK OK. so I am new to UNIX being a longtime VMS/DOS/WINDOWS/Novell

Never the less I like what I have seen of Linux so far and giving up
on the problem at 3.00 am and comming back after a nights sleep made
all the difference.


1. Telnet wont work...

Hello, i'm having problems to connect with my linux server... When i try to
connect from a windows95 machine, i can see that the session is connected. I

sesion for about 30 seconds, one minute. After that period commes the login
prompt on screen but has my logon timed out...
