From the above I'm guessing that you are trying to login as root, which is an exceptionally bad idea. While the change you've made should allow a root telnet session, it could be that your problem lies elsewhere.

To diagnose the problem first try a telnet connection while logged onto the Solaris system to the localhost address as an ordinary user, like 'telnet localhost'. If that doesn't work and you get a connection refused, then it's likely that telnet is disabled in /etc/inetd.conf.

Once you can connect to the localhost address, try a connection from another system on the local LAN (same subnet). If that works then you know that the Solaris system is properly accepting telnet connections. If you still can't connect from other locations then the problem may be due to intervening router or firewalls.
