Cannot telnet into linux box (From WFWG to Linux Box)

 Hi. I am new to networking and I have a problem. I installed a SMC
network card on my linux which seems to be recognized at boot time. No
Network error messages either. I gave it an IP address of
and it seems to be okay. This is just a test setup of two machines.

I want to telnet from Windows for WorkGroups into the Linux machine, but
I get connection failed. When I type netstat, I get the following:

Active Internet connections
Proto Recv-Q Send-Q Local Address       Foreign Address         (State)
tcp        0      1 mark.budman:telnet       SYN_RECV
Active UNIX domain sockets
Proto RefCnt Flags      Type            State           Path
unix  1      [ ACC ]    SOCK_STREAM     LISTENING       /var/run/gpmctl
unix  1      [ ACC ]    SOCK_STREAM     LISTENING       /dev/printer
unix  2      [ ]        SOCK_STREAM     CONNECTED       /dev/log
unix  2      [ ]        SOCK_STREAM     CONNECTED      
unix  1      [ ACC ]    SOCK_STREAM     LISTENING       /dev/log

It seems to be detecting that I am trying to log in but it always fails.

Anybody have any suggestions?



1. Problem finding Linux box from WFWG 3.11 box


I have been trying to network a Linux box and a WFWG 3.11 box via TCP/IP.
I am currently trying to use the 32-bit TCP/IP drivers for WFWG version
3.11a(version of drivers, not WFWG). I have edited the HOSTNAME and hosts
files in my Linux box's /etc directory and have defined the Linux IP address
in the TCP/IP configuration dialog box in WFWG. I then tried to telnet and
FTP into the Linux box from WFWG and would wait about 3 minutes before I
get a "Connection Failed" error message. Can anyone point me to a step-by-step
procedure on what else I might be missing. I have the Linux Network Administrator's
Guide and have tried to follow that as much as possible. I would appreciate any
suggestions. Thank you.

P.S. I have Linux kernel 1.1.59
