   I know nothing, but my Web search for that error message found (among
other things):

      https://community.hpe.com/t5/x/x/m-p/4164228

What did your search find?


> [...] one of my server.

   What's different about this system?


> OS : HPUX 11.31

   On which hardware?  As usual, showing actual commands with their
actual output can be more helpful than vague descriptions or
interpretations.

     uname -a

Just a wild guess: this might happen if the telnet command is attempting to connect to destination port number 0 for some reason - perhaps because your /etc/services file has the "telnet" line removed or commented out, as some misguided "security hardening" instructions sometimes suggest.
