telnet for a user

we are on RED HAT linux:
$uname -a
Linux 2.6.9-42.0.2.ELsmp #1 SMP Thu Aug 17 18:00:32 EDT 2006 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux

The only user that can connect in telnet is root. How can I authorize another users to do telnet ?
Many thanks.

Look at /etc/security/access.conf file for possible restrictions, or other similar file.
