    Telnetd


    Hi.

    I'm trying to access my Ubuntu-server, by telnet from a Win XP SP2 machine. I've tried both telnet and the more secure PuTTY. They both reported something like :"Network Error: Connection Refused".

    When I try to log in on the Ubuntu server, like: telnet localhost The machine reply:

    Trying 127.0.0.1...
    telnet: Unable to connect to remote host: Connection refused


    Can someone please tell, gladly, a step-by-step thing to make it work.

    ... and if you did'nt got it; I'm a newbie.


    Thanks
