Would indicate that something is blocking the connection. Even though you say "Firewalls let traffic flow." I'm inclined to believe that not to be the case based on the telnet test.

It has to be on the unix side than. I tested a with a windows machine that has no firewall security on that subnet. What would you recommend to test the incoming connections on the solaris box?

Are you executing the telnet on the Solaris box or on another machine on the same local subnet?  And are you using the IP of the Solaris machine in the telnet command?
