Data Unable to telnet into the Sun server

I tried to telnet to my Sun server (E250) but I received the error message :
"Network error: Connection reset by peer".

I was able to ping my server. And, I had already commented off "CONSOLE=/dev/console" in /etc/default/login.

But, if I rlogin from all other servers, it works.

Is there some configuration setting somewhere?

Something you may want to check is if the in.telnetd daemon is configured in the /etc/inetd.conf file. If it is commented or not there, that is probably why.

The line should look something like this (one line):

telnet stream tcp6 nowait root /usr/sbin/in.telnetd in.telnetd

Once that is there, you can either reboot, or run "kill -HUP <pid>" Where <pid> is the process id of the inetd process.

On Solaris 7 and 8, you can just run "pkill -HUP inetd"
