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
even hear activity on the disk off the linux but i can see no text on my
sesion for about 30 seconds, one minute. After that period commes the login
prompt on screen but has my logon timed out...

What can be the problem here??

Greetings,

Fix your DNS. Put the ip address of your win95 box in /etc/hosts with some
fake name.

1. Telnet wont work but ftp will

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.
