I have Fedora 9 installed on my Hp Laptop and I have Windows Vista on

have is that I can telnet OUT anywhere from my Hp Laptop that has Fedora on it but I
cannot telnet in any time. I have tried everything that I could even taking the Security
off the Hp Fedora. I am at a loss. I have tried to send may messages to see if anyone can
hep but to no avail.
The telnet server software is not installed by default in Fedora; the
reason for this is that it's quite insecure to send login (and other)
information across the network in plaintext. The ssh service is an
encrypted alternative and is enabled by default (free Windows ssh
clients are available, such as putty).
