I can't telnet or ftp to FreeBSD box although I can work out of it fine,
ping, traceroute, etc. The connection just hangs for a couple minutes,
then tells me "cannot telnet..."
When I run trafshow on the server, I do see request for telnet/ftp coming,
but inetd (which _is_ running) does not react. (conf files are OK,
telent and ftp are among allowed services).
I looked over archives, it seem some people had very similar problem
when reverse DNS lookup didn't work and FreeBSD couldn't lookup
client. It is not the case, I can't telnet from hosts that can be
Another person had the same problem and was advised to set tcp_extensions
to "NO" in /etc/rc.conf It didn't help me :-(
In other words, i searched up and low and cose to the end of the rope.
Your help is greatly appreaciated.
P.S. FreeBSD -3.0 -RELEASE.
...I used to run 2.2.6 and didn't have this problem there :-)
