    Very much a newb here attempting to learn on the fly and using the Perfect Server Ubuntu 8.04 guide to get a website up and running on a linode vps.

    I used the available 8.04 image on Linode and began following the instructions on page 3 of the guide.

    At the bottom of page 5 I'm told to

    But I'm getting the telnet command not found error.

    Did I miss something along the way for this to happen? Or am I an idiot missing something even more obvious :confused:

    Help will be greatly appreciated.

    thank you!

    i figured it was something like that.

    i actually had searched "install ubuntu telnet" on google prior to posting the question but found apt-get install telnetd

    Not sure what that did, but it didn't work.

    Thank you Falko for the help.
