cross connect 2 hosts and telnet problem
Hi every one,
I met a very strange problem with ethernet cross connection. When I connect my 2 linux boxes to office LAN (using hub), telnet connection from one host to the other works well. But when I directly connect that 2 linux boxes using cross cable, telnet doesn't work, though I see that network interface from both hosts are setup fine (ping command works, and even the http service works over 2 hosts). When the client box establish a telnet connection to the server box, I can see that in the server box, telnetd is waked up (inetd forks a new in.telnetd for servicing the new connection), but from my client box, nothing displays on the shell prompt after telnet command pressed, and after that, shell returns with timeout message.
I hope someone know this problem and how to solve it.
Thanks very much,
