2009-12-08 06:34:08     telnetd

Hello,

 

          I need telnetd running as stand alone application instead through inetd. For that I tried

 

/bin/telnetd command by giving options but it is not considering any option and always gives

 

./bin/telnetd: getpeername: Socket operation on non-socket

² ²  ²# ²'^C

 

and also tried

 

busybox telnetd -p 5000

 

I could see telnetd waiting on port 5000 for client connections using netstat command

 

but when I try to connect to telnetd waiting on 5000, immediately the connection is getting closed like

 

telnet 192.168.4.23 5000

 

Trying 192.168.4.23(34835)...

Connected to 192.168.4.23.

Escape character is '^]'.

 

Connection closed by foreign host.

 

 

 

How can I make telnetd to wait on different port other than changing inetd.conf?

 

Regards,

 

Parimala

the default telnetd doesnt support anything other than inetd.  you'd have to edit the telnetd source code to remove the define that disables everything.

 

did you enable the login utility for telnetd to execute ?  otherwise it wont have any way of authenticating you.

 

telnet in general is a bad idea.  if this is something that is going over the network, you should probably use dropbear.
