telnetd and DNS

Just wondering if there was a way to stop telnetd from looking up client hostnames before starting a session?
Because for unlisted hosts, it will take 3 mins to timeout before beginning, very annoying.
Platforms: Solaris/AIX/Linux

Thanks a heap.

this is not a telnetd but a problem of resolving names.
Check your DNS, and/or /etc/resolv.conf, i.e. order of consulted services like: nis, dns, files etc.
