This error means that you are attempting to wrap an IPv6 service with TCP Wrappers (tcpd) that only supports IPv4. As a fix, install the TCP Wrappers IPv6 package from Sunfreeware or build TCP Wrappers with IPv6 support.

Solaris 8 SPARC Example:

$ grep ^telnet /etc/inet/inetd.conf

telnet  stream  tcp6    nowait  root    /usr/local/bin/tcpd     in.telnetd

/var/adm/messages:
