    remember that you will need to have a server application (daemon) running within your linux server for it to allow people to telnet into it.

    I must admit that it is sometime since I've played with this, but I seem to remember that the process is called 'telnetd'. So, if you open up a terminal window and type something like 'ps -alx' you should be givien a list of all the processes that are running. See if telnetd is one of them (of course you could be fancy and enter "ps -alx | grep 'telnetd' " ).

    Also I think you'll have to look into xinetd which is used to control such services as telnet . Oh, wait a minute, not sure that it's part of Redhat 6.2 .

    You may find, that within Gnome there is a utility called services, which lets you define which services are started at start up. I say 'may' as I've not used Redhat before version 7.3 .

    Hope that this helps
