I am trying to enable FTP/Telnet on Oracle Linux server (64bit), i am still getting same error.
I installed required RPM's
[root@apps xinetd.d]# rpm -qa|grep telnet
[root@apps xinetd.d]# rpm -qa|grep ftp
[root@apps xinetd.d]# chkconfig telnet on
error reading information on service telnet: No such file or directory
FTP and Telnet are really obsolete and considered a security risk. Both were replaced by the SSH2 package many years ago. Btw, you should use YUM and not install some very old Fedora software using RPM under Enterprise Linux, which can break your system beyond repair.
If you really need a FTP server, simply do the following without the need to install any additional software.
Change the following:
disable = yes to disable = no.
remove the –a option in the server_args line.
You should now be able to FTP to your server.
