Telnet to a Linux account from Windows

GiantGiant Posts: 225Member
Not sure is I am in the right place but I have a problem and here it is. I am trying to telnet into a Linux account from Windows, but the network I am on, has a firewall so I cant connect. Is there any way around this?

Thanks
Giant

    I'm not sure exactly how the firewall is setup to block, but you can try using another port (like the HTTP port, 80) or ask them to unblock the telnet port. It probably won't work, but worth a try.

    The firewall may be set up to reject telnet connections for security reasons. Try using some secure shell (there are free ssh implementations on the web).

    Hi,

    Most linux distribution now come with the telnet port closed for with or without the firewall for security reasons. However they open up SSH port - so as abc said use ssh or if you have access to the linux box - enable telnet in the inetd.conf or xinetd.conf so you can telnet into the box.
