You may want to look at 'ssh' - it is used in the same
way as telnet; i.e. 'ssh hostname' and is more secure.

For telnet; edit /etc/inetd.conf - and uncomment the line with telnet
(remvoe the #) and either send a kill -1 to the inetd application (ensure
rc.conf contains inetd_enable=YES) or reboot.

See the chapter on inetd in:

for more details.

See the chapter 'packages and ports' in

for details on hwo to install etherreal and then do a

	man ethereal

for details on your network cards (the interface you are referred to in
the above 'man ethereal' page).
