Hey Stanley,
from my point of view the question is, do you really need telnet?
It's pretty insecure and AFAIK it does nothing that you can handle
with ssh.
Maybe you should give it a try.
Sorry, but I can't give you any hints about securing telnet,
because I stopped using a long time ago.

best regards
uwe
