Solaris 7 (x86) - The OS version displays but freezes before giving a Login: prompt via telnet
Posted on 2004-08-02
I'm working with an Intel server running Solaris 7. I've recently lost the ability to telnet into the box. I can telnet out from the box to other servers on campus and can FTP both in/out. I've checked most of the standard things like the /etc/inetd.conf and there are no /etc/hosts.allowed or hosts.deny files. I applied the recommended cluster patches a couple of weeks ago hoping that might solve the problem, but it didn't help.
Suggestions would be appreciated. Reinstalling Solaris 7 or upgrading to a newer version are not desirable options at this point.
