Telnet failure on MCF5329

I have a 5329 board up and running with "ltib-cf_nommu-20081215".  Ethernet works fine and I can also connect using NFS to the board.  But I cannot connect to the board with telnet.  The connecting computer shows the following error:

 

Trying 192.168.4.25...
Connected to 192.168.4.25.
Escape character is '^]'.
Connection closed by foreign host.

 

On the board side an error shows up in the /var/log/messages, it says:

 

Jan  1 02:17:27 freescale user.err telnetd: open pty

 

 

Any ideas on why I cannot get telet to run?

Thanks in advance

Bruce

Did you get this working? I am using telnet with the 20081215 ltib. I had success by not using inetd and starting telnetd manually. Make sure you have "Target System Configuration" "Boot up with tty and login" Inittab startup line:

(::respawn:-/sbin/getty -L console 0 screen) Under "Character Devices"  I have "Unix98 PTY support" and "Legacy (BSD) PTY support" enabled. In Busybox configuration "Support standalone telnetd (not inetd only)" enabled.
