sounds like you dont have telnet enabled in /etc/inetd.conf

i would use openssh, but if you want to use telnet, open up
/etc/inetd.conf in a text editor and take out the # at the beginning of
the telnet config line. then restart inetd. also make sure you have the
telnet dameon binary installed (/usr/sbin/in.telnetd)
