I need some help getting telnet and/or ssh servers configured on my
Redhat 7.1 box. I have the following installed:
I seem to be able to logon using telnet or ssh when using my 'linux'
box (telnet 127.0.0.1) . I cannot logon using my windows box and a
network connection, though.
I can ping the linux box from my windows 98 box without difficulty.
When I attempt a telnet session over my network, I get the error
message: 'could not open a connection to 192.168.x.x'
When I attempt a ssh session over my network, I get the message: "the
host '192.168.x.x' is unreachable. the host may be down, or there may
be a problem with the network connection. sometimes such problems can
also be caused by a misconfigured firewall.
I've spent the last three hours reading man pages and posts. I've
followed suggestions concerning changes to:
protocol = tcp
flags = resue
socket_type = stream
wait = no
user = root
server = /usr/sbin/in.telnetd
log_on_failure += USERID
disable = no
prot = 23
I changed the ListenAddress in sshd_config to the local IP of my win98Quote:}
These changes had no impact.
One message I read suggested 'naming' the computers on the network
within the 'hosts' file, but I couldn't figure out what that meant.
any help would be appreciated.
