Hi guys,

I'm newbie to Linux.I don't know how to enable telnet connection in Fedora.I had changed the disable value in "xinetd.d", even though i'm not accessible by other machines through Telnet.However i'm able to access that machines using Telnet.Can any one solve my problem?

Thanks in advance :

here is the shortest way
1. chkconfig telnet on
2. edit /etc/securetty and add following lines at the end of file
pts/0
pts/1
pts/2
3. service xinetd reload

Actually if u just perform step 1 and 2 then only normal users can telnet but if u want to telnet using root account then step 2 is mandatory. pts/0 to /2 indicate that maximum 3 root accounts can login
