The HPUX system doesn't properly negotiate LINEMODE. Either run telnetd on
the NetBSD system with the -k flag or create a second port for telnetd with
the -k. I personally leave the normal telnetd alone. Then in
/etc/services I have:
kltelnet 169/tcp # DAVE - hack for stupid telnets
And in /etc/inetd.conf I have:
kltelnet stream tcp nowait root /usr/libexec/telnetd telnetd -k
Then on braindamaged systems where I wish to telnet to NetBSD systems, I
telnet to port 169.
telnet netbsd-host 169
Better yet, replace HPUX on the hp with NetBSD!!!
