peter@joule:~$ grep telnet /etc/inetd.conf
telnet stream tcp nowait root /usr/sbin/tcpd /usr/sbin/in.telnetd -a user
# Restart inetd.

Then the result from telnet to localhost is in this little screenshot.

So in Debian 10 the manual for telnetd mentions -a but the screenshot 
suggests it is deprecated.

The -L parameter might work; if I can find a suitable null procedure.  Eg. 
grep telnet /etc/inetd.conf
telnet stream tcp nowait root /usr/sbin/tcpd /usr/sbin/in.telnetd -L /bin/null

This null is ficticious of course.  Concrete ideas welcome.

Thanks,                       ... P.
