[SOLVED] Telnet timeout issue

I have telnet configured in /etc/inetd.conf as below:


Code:
telnet       stream tcp6 nowait root /usr/lbin/telnetd  telnetd -b /etc/issue -n20

When i restart the service telnetd shows with only the -b option:


Code:
ps -ef|grep telnetd|grep -v grep
    root 24397     1  0 10:42:35 pts/ta    0:00 telnetd -b /etc/issue

When users try to connect via telnet they are only getting 2 seconds before being logged out of the terminal.

Can anyone point me in the right direction as to why the timeout is so short by default and why i can't set the "-n20" option to extend the timeout?

never mind problem solved, it was calling the login command when connected and it was the login configuration that was set to 5 seconds. Changed that to 30 and it now works
