How can I enable telnet and ssh at the same time

currently our system is configure to respond to ssh protocol.  I would like to enable the telnet port 23 as well as ssh.  
Can you advise me how to do that.

thanks

Uncomment the telnet line in /etc/inetd.conf and kick inetd.

However.... If you have SSH it must be because you have some idea of keeping things secure. You cannot acheive security and have telnet running.

You can, however, ADD ssh support to the Solaris box as you wean your users away from telnet.

Just in case Chris's "kick inetd" suggestion is a bit brief for you, you need to do

pkill -HUP inetd

Hi,

   You might also want to check /etc/services to make sure the following line is not commentted out:
---
telnet       23/tcp
---

As stated above un-comment telnet in /etc/inetd.conf, also check /etc/services and make sure it is not commented out.  If this is Solaris 9 or 10 then you should also check /etc/hosts.allow and enter telnet: <IP or HOSTNAME> of the machines that are allowed to access it... or telnet: ALL but that's a very bad idea.
