I'm having a strange problem with a Sol7 box - once the system is up and
running, in multi-user, any
inetd - spawned service will not authenticate.  I have checked that passwd
and shadow are intact and properly
being updated.  Basically, I get something like this:

$ telnet machine.server.com
Connected to machine.server.com.
Escape character is '^]'.

and then... infinite hang.  This is the same with telnet, rsh, ftp, etc.

any suggestions?  BTW - the box was working great up until yesterday, and
nobody made any changes - it just
stopped working.  Reboot has no effect.
