Lots of times this is a firewall issue where the port opening is set
for tcp and not UDP.  check that.  Check that both are using port
1812, if that is what you are using.  Have you edited your telnet pam
entry?  I'm not familiar with solaris, but that is what I would check.

More info would be helpful too.
