How to telnet on hassio via Docker?


I have hassio installed on a NUC via Docker. Can someone explain to me how I can telnet to Home Assistant? I always get an error message :disappointed_relieved:

telnet: Unable to connect to remote host: Connection refused


You can’t, basically because it’s 2019 and telnet is dead.

Use a secure shell client (ssh) to connect. Or - use docker exec -it [containername] /bin/sh to run a shell inside the container itself.

Oh, didn’t know. Thanks @m0wlheld.

Any idea how I can run this command via SSH then?


Actually - and this is just a guess - it looks like you need to telnet to your HEOS device to enter that URL, not to Home Assistant.

But I don’t have no hardware of that type, so I cannot provide valuable assistance.

Yes, that was it :slight_smile:

Thanks a lot, @m0wlheld!!
