You can actually remove telnetd. You do not need that.
Another test might be to see if debian system can print to itself via lpd.
Go to the cups printer administration page. Add a new printer and use the
printer url at
Where xxx is your printername. Use a printer type of raw
Then try to print to the printer e.g.
echo "hello" | lpr -P newprintername
If that works then the problem lies on the Solaris box (or in the access
control lists of cups)
