im working with a small Linux System with network support on an local
network. A ping from a remote machine is successful. A local telnet
session is also successful. A telnet session from the remote machine
I can see with ifconfig, if the ping from the remote machine is running,
the tx counter increases. If I try the remote telnet session, i can
watch incoming packets but no packet will transmitted.
With tcpdump i see the telnet connect request from the remote machine.
At next my machines sends an arp-request about the address of the remote
machine and the remote machine replies the correct information, but
nothing will happen.
My routing table has an entry for the network an for my own machine.
Im Starting telnetd by inetd.conf direct not checked by tcpd.
Has anybody an idea whats going wrong.
