By chidimark ·
hi
i have a redhat linux 6.0 which is working fine over the network.ie i can access this machine using telnet from all domains accept one. currently i have two domains mr1(nt4.0) and ocr1.(nt4.0). on ocr1 server i use telnet and ip address of my linux machine to connect. aqnd it prompts "login".but on the other server it says 'red hat linux release 6.0(hedwig) kernel 2.2.5 -15 on an i686' and cursor blinks without prompting the login.
i have checked that both the machines ping over the network.but i m still not getting the exact cause of it. plz help me out.

I have had a similar issue with RH6.2. See if you can login to another terminal window, i.e. Ctrl | Alt | F2 or F3 etc. You don have X running by any chance do you? Ctrl | Alt | F7 should return you to your X window if you do.

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").
