Today we are going to be installing a funny package that allows you to telnet into a linux machine (we are going to be using debian) and gives you a funny reason.
First off we login to the debian machine we are going to use open a terminal window and gain root access. Then type the following command, make sure you have internet because it will be need to download this packages.
apt-get install openbsd-inetd fortunes-bofh-excuses
Then we are going to open the file
/etc/inetd.conf in your favorite editor.
And add the following line at the end of it.
excuse stream tcp nowait root /usr/games/fortune /usr/games/fortune
Then edit the file
/etc/services and put in the line
Now if you run
telnet yourserversip 666 your will get your excuse of the day.
