Telnetd to be enabled in mindi-busybox

Reported by: Dominic Owned by: Bruno Cornec
Priority: normal Milestone: 2.2.9
Component: mindi-busybox Version: 2.2.8
Severity: normal Keywords: telnet ssh telnetd sshd mindi remote login


Could telnetd be enabled in mindi-busybox (it is in busybox, but is not configured in mindi-busybox: see .config '# CONFIG_TELNETD is not set / # CONFIG_FEATURE_TELNETD_STANDALONE is not set')? If this was so and if udhcpc was used at startup to enable network access e.g.:

udhcpc -i `ifconfig -a|egrep -o ^eth[0-9]`

then it would be possible to boot mondorestore on a machine with no local access and login remotely using telnet in order to run it. Which would be quite useful I think. I see from googling that pty support would be needed as well in kernel and in busybox, I don't know if this is a problem?

sshd would be even better but I am not sure it is available in busybox.

I added sshd in deplist.txt in rev [2218]. Should already help. I'm not so found of promoting telnet connection to boxes, even for DR.
