Hi All,

A combination of having tcpd for ipv4 while specfiying tcp6 in inetd
and having a typo in hosts.allow.

i deployed  tcp_wrappers_ipv6-7.6-sol8-sparc-local and corrected the

Thanks to all as always for pointers.


Hi All,

I have to open one of my server to telnet ( so networks team can
connect from a router - which has a non ssh client ios installed - dont
ask )

Anyway i deployed tcp wrappers, and configured inetd.conf as such,
uncommenting and editing the telnet line.

telnet stream  tcp6    nowait  root    /usr/local/bin/tcpd    

edited hosts.allow to add in the ip of the router

in.telnetd: n.n.n.n

edited hosts.deny


now i see telnet listining in netstat

      *.telnet             *.*                0      0 24576      0

when i try to connect i dont get anymore

telnet: Unable to connect to remote host: Connection refused
 as expected - but i dont get a login

i get after a short several second wait

Connection closed by foreign host.

seems my hosts.allow or hosts.deny wrong ?

Any clues ?
