I have finally got my NetBSD system attached to something else, being my
Windows music machine. I wish to use the NetBSD system as a NFS server. But
the problem at hand is when I try to telnet to the Netbsd machine I get the
message "telnetd: All network ports in use.". There is probably a simple
answer to this one !. Some help please !
You may not have pty/tty devices in /dev. Look in /dev for
files named ptyp0 through ptyqf and ttyp0 through ttyqf. If you don't
have them, run './MAKEDEV pty' as root while in /dev. This should
create the necessary files for network connections and related stuff.
