Semaan, it is possible. I don't remember how I did it eaxactly.
Can you check the /etc/xinetd.d/telnet file and try tweaking the "user" parameter.
Let me see if I can get something on this.

which is your OS?

btw, why don't you use ssh instead of telnet, ssh is more secure.

Try this link...
I don't think as such Solaris provides anything like that...

Or you can lock the password for all other users... Smilie... but remember in that case ftp also will not work for others...
