Yeah, you are both right, I was fooled by not seeing telnetd in the ps
output. Turns out telnetd is invoked throught the inetd daemon.
$ grep telnet /etc/inetd.conf
# Ftp and telnet are standard Internet services.
telnet stream tcp nowait root /usr/sbin/in.telnetd in.telnetd
And by the way, the two user limit in the "Personal Edition" of UnixWare
2.1 seems to be real:
$ telnet 172.27.101.128
Connected to 172.27.101.128.
Escape character is '^]'.
UnixWare 2.1 (gollum1) (pts/2)

telnetd: set_id() failed: Too many users
Connection closed by foreign host.
This thing was released in 1996. Obviously, with this limitation it could
not hold a candle to the emerging Linux tsunammi full of free source code.
