Enable Telnet in Ubuntu

Would you like to enable the telnet service in ubuntu?

Though its not secure at all,may be you have been using it in you’r institution or you want to make you’r system a unix server so that a bunch of people/students can access your VIM EDITOR,most institutions use to write Network programs..

1st We need to install the Telnet Server on our System:

In terminal type this:

sudo apt-get install telnetd

2nd We just refresh it i.e. restart the service:

sudo /etc/init.d/openbsd-inetd restart


Now get the ip address of you’r system and give them to you’r TRUSTED perrs and if they are in windows/linux

type this

telnet youripaddress

done! they can now use your Linux Services on their machine
