If using TCP Wrappers, this error may mean that you are attempting to wrap an IPv6 service with a 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
