Re: Telnet login not allowed

could it be a PAM issue? or what else? I am not even asked about

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.
My PAM setup is untouched and looks like this for telnet:
auth required pam_nologin.so no_warn
auth include system
account include login
session include login
password include login
