You probably have to install the telnet-server RPM, and make sure telnet
is enabled in /etc/inetd.conf.

However, telnet is insecure: it sends passwords in the clear over the
network.  You would be much better off using ssh if at all possible.
ssh is very easy to use, does much more than telnet, and is secure.
