View Full Version : Telnet or SSH

I have FC2 and I would like to telnet to my server from another computer. How do I start/install Telnet (or SSH) on server?

A ssh server should already be installed an running by default. At the machine try running ssh localhost to make sure. It is the openssh-server package. To start it, as root run service sshd start Most Linuxes probably have a ssh client already. For Windows try PuTTY (http://www.chiark.greenend.org.uk/~sgtatham/putty/) I recommend ssh because it is secure.
Telnet is much the same: there is a telnet-server package to install.
For both you have to let the requests through the firewall. An easy way to do this is at Main Menu > System Settings > Security Level.

I recommand you ssh. It's far more secure than telnet.
Like Jman said, Putty client for windows work fine and command ssh on Linux. Just start the service and your on.
The port is 22 if you need it.

Am I wrong or is it not port 23?

Sorry It is port 22. Port 23 for telnet.

I'm glad it worked.
To clear up any future port questions check out the /etc/services file. It lists more services and their ports than one would know what to do with.
