    mhm, sorry but telnet is not a good choise. it sends the activity, passwords etc in clear text, and wery good for a cracker. so, use "SSH" (Secure Shell) at www.openssh.org or www.ssh.com . The installation steps for this is quite easy, and its all explained on www.openssh.org :)


    Good luck :)

    I think it means'

    start xinetd and try connecting via telnet.

    Xinetd is a meta-daemon in a way, it runs as a service and detects traffic to known ports (such as port 23 for telnet). Once it receives a request for telnet service, it invokes the telnet daemon. It does this for other daemons too, invoking them only when they're needed. A nifty little trick to save resources.

    BTW I agree you should use only ssh, although I have in the past used my machine as a go-between for ssh connections on clients supporting only telnet. In other words:

    telnet to my own machine -> ssh to other host
