Are you using DNS? Try adding entries for the machines which need TCP access
into your Linux box in /etc/hosts. I had a problem with telnet access into a
Linux machine recently, with telnet sessions just hanging after connection. It
seems that tcpd or telnetd was trying to look up the originator by its IP
address, failing, and just sitting there doing nothing.
