Re-blogged from Zahidhaseeb’s Blog:
In my environment I have used Linux Redhat 6.2
- Install three packages telnet-server, telnet and xinetd.
- Make sure that the xinetd service should be running.
- Configure the file name /etc/xinetd/telnet
1.) Install three packages telnet-server, telnet and xinetd.
You need to install three services
for example # yum install telnet-server telnet
the above command will also install the xinetd service. See the following example for reference:
Package Arch Version Repository Size
telnet i686 1:0.17-47.el6 base 56 k
telnet-server i686 1:0.17-47.el6 base 36 k
Installing for dependencies:
xinetd i686 2:2.3.14-33.el6 base 121 k
Install 3 Package(s)
Total download size: 213 k
Installed size: 409 k
2.) Make sure that the xinetd service should be running.
# service xinetd status
xinetd (pid 13561) is running…
Please also note: Make sure that your firewall also stopped or the telnet traffic is allowed
3.) Configure the file name /etc/xinetd.d/telnet
We need to change the following highlighted line from yes to no
# vi /etc/xinetd.d/telnet
# default: on
# description: The telnet server serves telnet sessions; it uses \
# unencrypted username/password pairs for authentication.
flags = REUSE
socket_type = stream
wait = no
user = root
server = /usr/sbin/in.telnetd
log_on_failure += USERID
disable = yes
In few scenarios, telnet works over the ip, but does not resolve specific ports. In that case xinetd services needs a restart
“service xinetd restart”
Thank you for some other informative site. Where else may
just I am getting that type of information written in such an ideal
approach? I’ve a project that I am just now working on, and I have been on the look out for such info.
Have you ever thought about including a little bit more than just your
articles? I mean, what you say is fundamental and all. Nevertheless think of if you
added some great graphics or video clips to give your posts more, “pop”!
Your content is excellent but with pics and videos, this website could certainly be
one of the most beneficial in its niche. Good blog!
Will surely look at your suggestion, thanks for doping by

Hi, I do believe your blog may be having internet browser compatibility problems.
Whenever I look at your web site in Safari,
it looks fine however, when opening in I.E., it’s got
some overlapping issues. I just wanted to provide you with a quick heads up!
Apart from that, wonderful site!
Thank for the info, however it is wordpress on the backend and I do not think there will be any compatibility issues. 🙂
That is a really good tip particularly to those new to the blogosphere.
Simple but very precise information… Many thanks for sharing this
one. A must read post!
