Check for explanatory messages in two places

1) in the system log /vad/adm/syslog
You can also use scoadmin to check for expired passwords, locked user
accounts and locked terminals.

2) displayed at the terminal
If your telnet client closes before you get a chance to see any message,
see if it has an option to not exit at session end. You could also try
to log in at the console (with the same id) and see what messages show
up. You could also use a network sniffer to capture any messages (e.g.
ethereal on your client PC).

That doesn't look like any SCO message I recall seeing.

Could you answer ALL the following :

1) What desktop system are you using? (Windows XP Pro, Windows 95,
Mandrake 9, MacOS X, ...)

2) What Telnet client software are you using on your desktop system?
(native windows telnet.exe, teraterm 3.2, tun 5, ...)

3) Do you connect through an Ethernet LAN or through a terminal server
or some other device (can you supply make & model info)
