As a follow-up to earlier post, I have found the following line in
Sep 14 12:14:31 lxdub01 in.telnetd^M: error: cannot execute
/usr/sbin/in.telnetd^M: No such file or directory
Now /usr/sbin/in.telnetd does exist, but where does the ^M come from. It
seems like it thinks the ^M is part of the filename. I even tried renaming
/usr/sbin/in.telnetd to /usr/sbin/in.telnetd^M but in the log file it then
had ..../in.telnetd^M^M . I'm at a loss here - help....please ?!?

Subject: [ILUG] Telnet problem
I have just installed MDK 7.1 . Everything was working fine, I could telnet
in no problem. I made some changes to the SAMBA config using Webmin. I
copied over some files using FTP and then shut down the machine because I
needed to move it. When it came back up everything seemed OK. I can access
the files through the SAMBA share and I can connect with FTP , but I can no
longer telnet into the box. I tried logging onto the box locally using root
and telnetting to localhost and just get the error "Connection closed by
foreign host" .
I'm not sure where to even look for error messages so any help would be
