I suspect maybe I don't have telnetd running?

I installed the usbNetwork hack and can ssh in, and I've also been using @lrizzo's fabulous "myts.arm" for a terminal as well ... I guess I assumed those would include telnetd. Maybe I'm wrong?

How do I start telnetd? Hmm doing a find on my kindle for telnetd comes up with no results ...

EDIT/UPDATE:
I applied the changes to the security policy file as noted in the original post (NB: need to "mntroot rw" first, and then "mntroot ro" when done), and now it seems to work.

Though for whatever reason it didn't draw the whole screen. I had to type in a few commands first and then magically the screen output appeared -- the "c" that I originally got is from the "Connecting ..." line at top.

So it seems telnetd must be running. Perhaps my find command syntax was off. I still do a "find . -name 'telnetd'" and nothing comes up. Hmm.

Well, I have the same symptoms. hawhil's KindleTerm cannot telnet to localhost on my Kindle because there is no telnetd process running though I have usbNetwork v0.30n up and alive. The Kindlet stays on "Connecting to 127.0.0.1".

I SSHed over the wifi interface and asked BusyBox :

BusyBox is a multi-call binary that combines many common Unix

link to busybox for each function they wish to use and BusyBox
will act like whatever it was invoked as!

Like yourself I have applied the security policies and myts.arm works fine. Also VDP's original KindleTerm can ssh to localhost.

All I can think is that the telnet daemon has been removed from this version of usbNetwork. But then you said your KindleTerm started to work at some point ... I wonder what triggered it?
