telnet is invoked by xinetd. Access to this is governed by a file telnet in
/etc/xinetd directory where in disabled would be marked yes. Change it to
no. If this still does not work, check the hosts.allow and hosts.deny file
in /etc where IP masks may have been denied.

Subject: [Ilugc] Unable to telnet port 25 on local machine
I have installed RH Linux 8.0 and am using IMAP .
When i try to telnet localhost on port 25 it goes thru ....however when i
try to telnet using ip address of the machine, the connection is refused,
what could be the possible issue.
I am using sendmail as the MTA ..
IMAP is thru in both instances.
Thanx in advance
