I know. Last time I tried to do that it wouldn't let me connect. Period.
Since then I've re-installed the box, and I've planned to get SSH running,
but I figured I would be OK with Telnet as long as it's all behind my firewall.

Not running an FTP daemon.

It wasn't last time. I never got it working. Since it looked like reading
the manual and learning what to do would take a while, I relegated that to
my "when I have time to start new projects" and switched to Telnet.

Every time I say "Bacula" somebody responds with "Amanda." Amanda seems OK
but doesn't do everything I want it to. As for DLT, I don't have the
resources to migrate to DLT right now, and I'm not wild about DLT anyway.
DDS-3 is working well enough for now and I'm looking at alternatives for
when I'm ready to change.
Thanks for the advice.
