Description Ben Greear 2001-09-20 14:53:22 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.77 [en] (X11; U; Linux 2.4.3-12 i686)

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
to no.

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 (
Escape character is '^]'.
Connection closed by foreign host.
[greear@grok greear]$ 

However, if I run this command, as root, after logging in on the
console, it works:

/etc/rc.d/init.d/xinetd restart

This is reproducible on several different machines running the same
configuration (RH 7.1 + updates).

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

Which xinetd do you have installed?
Comment 2 Ben Greear 2001-09-26 16:52:44 EDT
I was using xinetd 2.3.0.

I just upgrade to xinetd 2.3.3 and it seems to have fixed the problem.
