problems with telnet max users, can u guys give me a hand?

Post by pyana » 2021/01/12 13:29:36

hey all!,
so, I'm trying to have at least 150 users to my telnet server in Centos 7, I've already tried to modify the instances line to UNLIMITED or high numbers in :/etc/xinetd.d/telnet file but still no success, when i check the status of the telnet.socket the accepted are always good (around 3000 to 5000 depending on the last reboot) but the connected stuck on 64 and sometimes 69(nice) users, so i have to kick some users to accept new ones, i cant find a way to have more users connected at the same time. thanks in advance

Telnet server in this day and age?!!

Dump it and use ssh would be my advice.

Avoid telnet at all costs.
