Telnet for only one user at a time

  Date: Nov 24    Category: Unix / Linux / Ubuntu    Views: 423

I have installed SUSE 8.0 on a P200MMX+64Mb+4Gb PC, and did this by
installing a minimal system, ten added the packages and services

ftp, telnet, xinetd, apache, samba, ssh, xf86

All dependencies are ok and working, but today i noted this: when
trying to telnet the server, it only accept ONE connection. I mean,
when succesfully logged from one machine, a second try says
"connection to host lost". I cant telnet again unless i close the
other telnet session.
To make it short: i can telnet only ONCE at a time.

I think this is xinetd related, but the xinetd.conf is very clear (is
the default one) Can anybody helpme to make all telnet requests work?

maybe you could try putting this in your "/etc/xinetd.d/telnet" file
# default: on
# description: The telnet server serves telnet sessions; it uses \
# unencrypted username/password pairs for authentication.
service telnet
disable = no
flags = REUSE
socket_type = stream
wait = no
user = root
server = /usr/sbin/in.telnetd
log_on_failure += USERID
make sure "flags = REUSE"
and "wait = no"
hope that helps.
