Telnet deny

Hi all
I'm using an AIX 5 machine.
I'm trying to telnet from this machine to another Aix machine.
When I use the "root" user - Everything works.
I can telnet successfully the other machine
When I use another user but root - I can't telnet the machine:

noah@logist:/home/noah>telnet aixtst

The funny thing is that when I telnet from my PC to the same server (AIXTST) I have no problem.

Any Idea?
