Problem in telnet'ing to Solaris 8 machine...

www.unixbabuforum.inI am getting the following error when i try to start the telnetd daemon from 
the command line. 

telnetd: stdin is not a socket file descriptor 

When i checked the /etc/inetd.conf file , it is uncommented and also inetd 
daemon is also running. 

But i am unable to telnet to my Solaris 8 machine... 

HOw do i get around this problem...?"most likely it means that 'telnet' is unable to acquire it's 'tli' 
address. this can sometimes be caused by killing/restarting 'inetd' 
'telnet' connections in TIME_WAIT. 

a reboot should clear this up." 

Rebooted and fixed. One thing that may have contributed to this is that 
the time was off by 80 million seconds.....also, our cfengine runs hup 
inetd for some changes. The combination was probably not the most
