Is the Sun machine getting it's dhcp response from the same host as your tftp server?

Also I'd probably use dhcp instead of rarp on the sun.  The dhcp response can contain a 
next-server value to redirect the tftp to a different host.

I'd also check whether the /etc/hosts.all and /etc/hosts.deny are in play though these 
should be logged also.

Are you saying that the syslog is logging entries for the Sun's boot attempt?

Of course there's also "ufw status" to check an ubuntu firewall status.
