Hello,
  I am currently using the telnetd from the latest NetKit(0.10) and I was wondering if anybody knows of a way to fix it so I and others can telnet from a FreeBSD or Solaris system onto the Linux server. Currently if I am telneting from a system we have running Solaris and using the TERM of cons25 it (telnetd) will dump the core and not allow me to connect to the Linux box, I have also created this same occurance from using FreeBSD from home, however if I switch the TERM to vt100 it allows me to connect. Any help on this matter would be greatly appreciated. I have tried to add the cons25 TERM to /etc/termcap thinking it needed an entry for some odd reason but that didn't help either.

Thanks in advance.

Try to do
solaris:>infocmp >cons25.tic
root@linux:>tic cons25.tic
Maybe it will help.
