You can enable the "rustic telnetd" via "setup server" and go in muLinux
box, remotely, with your telned.

But this telnetd is not perfect: full screen program don't work. You can
use "ex", not "vi", for example.

Another problem: you MUST close the connection with a regular "exit",
otherwise "telnetd" remain busy for ever.

Dicevo che il demone di telnet funziona, ma e' solo un semplice script
a titolo dimostrativo. Supporta solo collegamenti con semplice prompt,
per cui non funzionano programmi a pieno schermo.

Ma il vero problema e' questo: se non si lascia il collegamento con "exit",
il demone rimane pendente e non accetta altre connessioni :((((



Mi sarebbe piaciuto concludere con un'affermazione positiva, ma
non me ne vengono in mente. Vanno bene due negative?
