I have been trying to set up networking between Linux and Windows98 (and
failing miserably!) As a first step to fault finding I am trying to
telnet to the linux machine that I am working on. If I try this to
localhost (or 127.0.0.1) it works. However when I try the same using
the actual host name of the machine I am working on (or it's IP address)
I get a message that the "connection closed by foreign host".
When I try to ftp to either 127.0.0.1 or the ip address of eth0 I get
the error message "421 Service not available".
Sorry for such basic questions but I have read the How-tos, and two
different Linux books and gone over the networking set up several times
but obviously am missing something.
