SSH is strongly recommended but just in case if you need Telnet server…

In order to turn Telnet on make sure that you have install the telnet-server and telnet RPMs:

Code:
yum install telnet-server telnet

Or 

you can mount the RHEL DVD and copy Telnet RPM and run the following. ( /mnt/Server/telnet-server-0.17-39.el5.i386.rpm )
rpm - Uvh telnet-server-0.17-39.el5.i386.rpm

Open /etc/xinetd.d/telnet

Code:
vi /etc/xinetd.d/telnet

Make sure that disable = yes is changed to read disable = no.

Code:
disable = no

Type following to enable and start service on port 23:

Code:
chkconfig telnet on
chkconfig xinetd on
service xinetd restart

Warning

Quote:

Again, I recommend that you use SSH to connect to a system instead of Telnet for security purposes.
