Telnet login not allowed


I cannot telnet to my box anymore (after one of the upgrades probably). I usually use rlogin which continues to work, so I wonder what is wrong and how can I debug it.

if I "telnet localhost" it works, thus the daemon is running, if I telent from the outisde, I get an authentication error (telnetd: Authorization failed) before even trying to input my password.

In authlog I see an inbound connection but no errors/warnings.

My inetd.conf line is:
telnet stream tcp nowait root /usr/libexec/telnetd telnetd -a valid

and has been so since ages I guess.

Thank you,
