The only other thing I would suggest is changing the entry in /etc/inetd.conf.

Your original:
ftp stream tcp6 nowait root /usr/sbin/in.ftpd in.ftpd

Your tcp entry:
ftp stream tcp6 nowait root /usr/local/bin/tcpd /usr/sbin/in.ftpd -l

ftp stream tcp6 nowait root /usr/local/bin/tcpd in.ftpd -l

Then kill -HUP on inetd

Where did you download the tcp wrappers from? Found the following at

1. Download the source code:
The source of TCP Wrappers is available from At the time of writing, the latest version is V7.6 and the source code is provided as a compressed tar archive in the file tcp_wrappers_7.6.tar.gz.

This version is suitable for Solaris 7 and earlier but not for Solaris 8. Solaris 8 contains support for IPv6 and the standard TCP wrappers program is not yet compatible with the IPv6 implementation in Solaris 8. However, Casper Dik, a Network Security Engineer with Sun Microsystems, has modified the standard version 7.6 to make it compatible with Solaris 8 and has kindly made his modified version available at in the file tcp_wrappers_7.6-ipv6.tar.gz.

Solaris 8 would require you use the one with ipv6.

Another easy workaround is to change the tcp6 & udp6 entries in /etc/inetd.conf to use tcp & udp.

Chances are that you do not have ip6 enabled on your network anyhow, so enabling tcp6 & udp6 on your box is quite unnecessary...
