The only think I know of that would return EPERM (Permission denied)
to a connect request is a local firewall rule blocking such
connections. If nothing was listening on the telnet port you'd get
'Connection refused', and if it was blocked by tcp wrappers it
would say 'Connected to ...' followed by 'Connection closed by
Do you have any ipfw or ipfilter rules in place that might block
local telnet connections?
