Description of problem:
I installed RH 7.1 (full installation), and then applied a large
number of updates from the RH update site (current as of about August 1).
I enabled telnet by editing the /etc/xinet.d/, changed disabled
When the machine first boots, I cannot telnet into the machine,
even from itself: The message I see is:
[greear@grok greear]$ telnet lanf2
Connected to lanf2 (192.168.1.56).
Escape character is '^]'.
Connection closed by foreign host.
However, if I run this command, as root, after logging in on the
console, it works:
This is reproducible on several different machines running the same
configuration (RH 7.1 + updates).
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
Which xinetd do you have installed?
I was using xinetd 2.3.0.
I just upgrade to xinetd 2.3.3 and it seems to have fixed the problem.
OK - then it looks like just another duplicate of 48367
