By chidimark ·
hi
i have a linux machine ,i connect to linux from other (nt domain) machine using telnet 192.168.16.28
ie. ip address of my lynux machine.from ntdomain a connection is established, the connection window displays
the remote host's login screen but here it doesn't prompts me for the login and passowrd but blinks after displaying
"Red hat linux release 6.0(Hedwig)
Kernel 2.2.5-15 on an i686
_ " after this it simply blinks instead of prompting me a login screen and password.
i found that these two machines do communicate with each other by ping from both the ends and it was giving me reply.
i checked cabling, configuration from nt and found it to be ok. do i need to configure the linux machine if yes what configurations please help me out...
i m in a great trouble kindly respond me i m in urgent need of this solution.


regards
pradeep.

Try hitting the "Enter" key twice in a row. That typically brings up the login screen.

First of all, I hope you have the telnet server installed and that the telnet daemon is running.
ps -eaf | grep inetd

If not then start it ...
/sbin/service inet start

Then check the firewall settings is not set too high, (man ipchains).

This is most likelly a reverse name resolution problem. As a quick fix, put the IP and name of your servers in the /etc/hosts file. Also check that the file is used prior to DNS in name resolution (if you have /etc/nsswitch.conf, check the line for"host", that "files" comes prior to "dns"; if you have /etc/host.conf; check the line for "order", that "hosts" comes prior to "bind").
