Re: How to allow telnet
I think all you need to do is install the telnetd package, but...
Telnet is a very insecure protocol and almost no one uses it for its original purpose anymore. Do not install it if you aren't behind a secure firewall and on a trusted network.
A better, more secure choice is to install openssh-server and use putty from windows to access the linux box. More details here:
