Solaris 9.0 (x86 on AMD Opteron) reboots after i FTP through Telnet

Hi All,
I have installed Solaris 9 on on an AMD Opteron based server.

The server is rebooting after i perform the following:

- Logon to Solaris 9 AMD box through telnet or putty
- ftp to any other box suppose box A where the FTP server is running
- After logging in to the box A through FTP , just make ls or any operation like mget and mput , This is rebooting the Solaris 9 AMD box .
But if we do the same operation after logging to Solaris 9 AMD box through Xmanager , there is no problem at all .

Can somebody suggest why i get the reboot only when i telnet. Is there some way i can avoid it.

HI All,
Quite surprised that i did not get any replies posted for the issue even after posting for 15 hours. Anyways, we managed to resolve the issue and for the sake of all the troubled folks out there with similar issue, i want to give the solution used:

The problem seems to have been resolved by by removing the root from ftpuser file on AMD Opteron box . Now there is no problem on doing FTP from a Telnet session .
