Inbound telnet to tru64 box

Post by airn.. » Wed, 28 Jun 2000 04:00:00



I'm trying to connect to my new DS20 box.

Local root logins work.

All tcp/ip out works.

LAT is configured, and gettys are running.

When I try to telnet in, I get "Connection Refused".

If this is documented, please tell me where, as I'm not seeing it. I've
looked through the docs that came with the system, on the Compaq
website, and here.

Any help?

Thanks in advance.

Do you have a valid base license installed..?

I assume you try to login as root. Perhaps securettys(4) might help. Add
a line containing "ptys" in /etc/securettys. But I wouldn't do this, it
might open a security problem. Instead I would add a ordinary local user
(therefore telnet is allowed) and allow this user to su(1) to root.

Another hint might be to look at matrix.conf(4). This depends on the
security model you are running.

Hope this helps,
        Tom.

Actually, it doesn't get that far. Telnet is not even able to establish
the connection. No login prompt appears.

If I got a login prompt, I would not be trying to log in as root
anyway.

I'm hooking this system up to an existing network with an NIS server on
a linux box. As an experiment, I tried creating a local user. No change.

The NIS user can log in locally, at least on the console. If he tries
to log in to X, X just cycles back to the log in screen. But that's a
different issue.

Any ideas?

Off the top of my head, a couple of things you could check:

What is defined for telnet in /etc/inetd.conf?  Make sure, whatever is
defined (I assume for a new system it is /usr/sbin/telnetd) is executable.

Eg. ls -l /usr/sbin/telnetd

-rwxr-xr-x   1 bin      bin        81920 Apr 13  1999 /usr/sbin/telnetd

If this is all OK, try HUPing inetd.

# kill -HUP `ps auxw | awk '$NF ~ /inetd/ {print $2}'`

Finally, is there anything interesting in /var/adm/syslog.dated/current/... ?

Hope this helps,

Andrew

Look at syslog for any message.
Check DNS record for client. server can refuse telnet connection from
client, whith has PTR record, but has no A record.

Is there a 'ptys' entry in /etc/securettys?

Make sure your server daemon is running.
try telnet 127.0.0.1

1. NETWORK--Outbound TELNET ok but Inbound TELNET fails

Hi, I am still having this problem (i.e., outbound TELNET or FTP works
fine but the inbound TELNET or FTP fails.  The inbound TELNET or FTP
will work for a few minutes after each outbound network access.)  I
saw a few other people posted message saying thwy had the same problem.
Have you guys solved this problem yet?  If so, what is the solution?

Thanks for any help.
