Problem about change services or inetd.conf - 19-October-2009, 15:12

I have one question.

I like to change the default telnet port 23 to some else example (583).

For that purpose i copy file services and inetd.conf with total commander then ii edit with ultraedit editor and when i like to copy back i can't.

Then i login dm with telnet localaddress and try to change with vi editor, but now again have a problem with save the update data the, i add a new line in file, but when i like to save i can't.

Then i put also chmod also chown 644 or 755 what ever, but also i can change nothing, cose i get the message "Read only file-system"

Any help will be appreciate.


P.S. Yes i forgot the main

DM 500s with gemini 46 and CCcam 2.1.1

What hardware are you running on... given the error message I guess some kind of Dreambox.

You've got little chance of getting this to work, as all the system & start-up parameters are indeed in read-only (flash) memory. The only way to change this is to build your own flash image.

My only suggestion is to try and run your own telnet daemon (telnetd) and get it to run on a different port, though I know no way of passing this info to the daemon.

On some DM images (PLi Jade) you can write a file in /var/etc/ called 'init' and that will be run once the box has started. With other firmware/boxes you are on a hiding to nothing as any changes you make are overwritten if power to the box is removed and re-applied.

(e.g. - I've been fishing to get a cron daemon running on a Technomate box for months with no solution other than telnetting into the box and starting it manually - so much for open source and keeping everything free and easy and available to everyone eh?)
