I have a Windows 2008R2 Server named
SERV1 connected to a Unix machine UNI1.
I can ping but I can't
I have installed the telnet client on server R2. I disabled the Windows Firewall on R2. Do I need to check any services running in
services.msc on R2 machine?
To telnet from a Windows computer to a Unix computer you need to ensure that
Since you didn't post an actual error message but just said you "can't do telnet" - we can only guess at the problem.
To check if the Telnet service is runnning, log on at the Unix server console and use this command:
The output should be this
Note: If you have problems, update your question with the actual command and error messages by using cut & paste (then edit only if needed to change confidential details)
Redhat / Fedora
Use these commands
The output from the second command should be
Once installed, from the GUI, select Administration, Services and enable Telnet
Distros using Xinetd
You need a file named /etc/xinetd.d/telnet with contents something like this
You shouldn't be doing this unless you are familiar with Linux, with Linux commands, with editors such as vi and have good backups and are prepared to reinstall if it all goes horribly wrong. If other people rely on this server, you should employ a systems administrator who is familiar with the particular Linux distribution you are using.
