Jairo,

Do a search on "telnet problems pts". You can see there are many problems. Look at these threads:

These should shed some light on the problem.

Have a great HP day!

Re: preblems to connect with telnet

Someone has trashed your /dev/pts directory (they would have to be root to do this). Remove *any* directory inside /dev/pts, then run insf -e to replace the missing device files.

Then, change the root password and cut the persons fingers off who has fat finger syndrome.

Re: preblems to connect with telnet

If it's just telm and tels gotten messed up (these are the telnetd devices), then you would ..
# cd /dev/pts
# rmsf t*
# rmsf /dev/telnetm
# cd /
# insf -d telm
# ll /dev/telnetm
Afterwards check /dev/telnetm and /dev/pts/ta. They should be created with the current timestamp.
