2 node network, Win95 and RedHat 5.2, telnet problems.

Post by Bob Bryl » Sun, 21 Feb 1999 04:00:00

Used to be 2 Win95 PCs on a two node network, converted one to Linux, RH5.2. Addresses: (Linux), (Win95). "ping" works FINE both directions. But "telnet" from
Win95 to Linux times out. "ftp" says connection refused. Running X Server on Win95 PC, can't
initiate connections with rsh or rexec, get message "Connection Refused". However, if I go to
the Linux PC, do a "setenv DISPLAY" then run "xterm", it pops up just fine on
the Win95 PC.

What do I need for masks, routes, etc. on each node? Is there some kind of permission I'm not
setting right on some Linux daemon (telnetd?) to allow connections?

1. Networking DECStation 5000/20 running OpenBSD 2.4 and i586 running Redhat Linux 5.2 & Win95

I recently acquired a DECStation 5000/20 from my uni's computing school. I
want to network it with my other computer. The problem is that I am not
familiar with OpenBSD and have had great difficulty finding files. The
DecStation only has a 200Mb SCSI-1 HDD which has 5Mb left free. I do not
really no what parts of the OS have been installed, ie compilers,
networking protocols, drivers, etc.I do not have a copy of OpenBSD (what do
you expect for $50) I do know that there is no source code. named, inetd
and tftpd are all installed I think. Does anyone know what might need doing
in order to network the two machines together? I have a very basic cachable
DNS set up in linux (for when I was playing with the Apache web server) and
most of the networking stuff off the CD is installed, except for ftp and a
few other things.
