I cannot telnet to my own machine, presumably because no telnet daemon
I emerged net-misc/netkit-telnetd which contains a
/usr/sbin/in.telnetd -> telnetd
and man 8 telnetd refers to inetd & services. services also refers to inetd,
specifically inetd.conf(5) and inetd(8), neither of which is present.
eix shows only a replacement for inetd, which leads me to suspect that
inetd is intrinsic,
but if so, why no sbin/inetd, and why no man page?
# eix inetd
Available versions: 2.3.13 2.3.14
Description: powerful replacement for inetd
I've searched around and found numerous related documentation, however
they are all for more complicated situations, I just can't see how to
start in.telnetd, which should be blindlingly simple.
All this is so I can telnet/ftp from a Windows machine in the next
room, so I don't have to go for a walk to look something up. It also
means I can have all my documentation on my gentoo machine, rather
than having a copy on the Windows machine for convenience.
