How can I let my Redhat 5.0 machine accept telnets from remote users? When users try to telnet to the machine, it prompts for the login, but then when the correct passwords are entered, it say login incorrect eventhough I know for certain that the correct user and password was entered.

You should download the file, libc-5.3.12-28.i386.rpm
