First you must check your configuration of inetd.conf in your etc dir
The line which specified ie telnet daemon must look like this :
telnet stream tcp nowait root /usr/sbin/tcpd /usr/sbin/in.telnetd
Command /usr/sbin/tcpd means that before establishing connection for telnet deamon (in.telnetd)
must pass rules of host.allow and host.deny
After that your configuration of hosts files should by something like this :
#this disable absolutely all connection for telnet but allow :
Rules for passing hosts config diles are :
1) If acces is allowed in host.allow - the request is enabled
2) If no, then host.deny is scanned for apropriate rule - if it's found - the request is disabled
3) If the apropriate rule hasn't been founded - the request is enabled
Uh, it might be all
