Cannot telnet from Windows 95 to Linux box

Cannot telnet from Windows 95 to Linux box

Post by Thanassi Michailid » Fri, 11 Aug 1995 04:00:00

I have a windows for workgroups network, with each client running WFWG 3.11
On one of the machines, we installed Windows 95 (previously 3.11). This
machine can communicate throughout the network, but I cannot do a telnet
or ftp to my Linux box anymore.

Any suggestions?


1. 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?
