When I try to telnet to the ASA I get a "connection refused by remote host" message. This has been working fine for a year. I've taken out the telnet permission and put it back in, still doensn't work. Has anybody seen this before.
If the configuration has not changed and you do have telnet enabled for your address, then check out this Bug ID CSCse08133 against the version you are running.
Also, see if the workaround fixes your problem.
*Pls rate if it helps*
