I need telnet & i know about the secure issues... :-)

I have installed the telnet-server & enabled the xinetd in
/etc/xinetd.d/telnet. The firewall is disabled for configuring the
telnet purposes.
What have I do more? Better: how I have to install or configure right?

I am using Suse Linux Enterprise Server 12 x64.

Thx for a reply

Is telnet working now? If not probably start the xinetd service (SLE 12
uses systemd/systemctl). If it is running then re-enable the firewall
and then via YaST Firewall and allowed services on the drop down at the
right select the telnet server and add and save.

I would perhaps look at configuring telnet to use a non standard port
as well for additional security.
