Enabling Telnet [D-Link DSL-504 Ethernet Router - 105317]

Hi everyone, I am wondering if anyone can resolve the following problem for me? I want to access my DSL-504 using Telnet, at present I am able to access my dsl504 using the web interface or telnet via the serial cable. I am unable to access it via Telnet and LAN. Does anyone know how to get this working? I have tried the following via the serial cable: > ip portname add telnet 23/tcp > config save > flashfs update > restart I have tried doing the backup configuration and editing snmpinit file and setting the following 2 options: access read abc123 access write xyz345 then restoring the configuration. So i have set these and yet i am still unable to telnet to the router. Any help that anyone can suggest would be very much appreciated. Thanks Freddy

Well, it looks like you have studied the information on Trev Roydhouse's site here and in my post addressing the same problem on the similar DSL-604+ here. If you read other posts in that thread, there is something else you could try: editing the 'resolve' file created by the Firmware Upgrade Utility and adding the lines:  portname add telnet 23/tcp  portname add snmp 161/udp then restoring the configuration. Or, as you have access via the console port, try that route for enabling the snmp port. Hope this helps - let us know how you get on
