telnet works fine on woody. I hate to admit to it but we have it
installed on all of our machines and it works fine. I recommend using
telnetd-ssl insetad of telnetd becuase ssh will nag you about it
otherwise. A darn nuisance.

Only because telnet is an intrinsically insecure protocol. So most
people won't admit to using it.

I can only think that your problem is that you are trying to use
xinetd. It is probably xinetd which is broken. Woody I really an
inetd based system, not xinetd. Basically I think you have a broken
xinetd and not a broken telnetd.

Go back to using inetd as is normal for a stock woody box. If not
then I would be willing to help since I have used that configuration
for years. I have not ever used xinetd and know little about it.
