Thread: Telnet missing

  1. #1

    Default Telnet missing

    During my reinstalling of my mail server due to an unfortunate incident described in another thread I needed to use telnet in order to test the setup.

    However, when I log in as root I get "command not found" when trying to use telnet.

    How do I enable telnet? Or what do I need to install in order to get telnet?

    let me guess: 'telenet' doesn't work, but 'telnet' does??

    (been there, done that!) i fixed that forever in
    /etc/bash.bashrc.local with:

    alias telenet='telnet'

    ;-)

    Bah... good riddance. If you really need something that can do telnet's
    job (plus a lot more) use netcat as I believe it also comes w/OpenSUSE by
    default. It even has a behave-badly-like-telnet mode should you really
    need it. In the meantime it does a MUCH better job of checking if an
    application (meaning a TCP-based application) is working (meaning
    listening) and is accessible:

    netcat -zv ipAddressOfServer portNumHere

    Good luck.
