I will once again say, don't use telnet. It is not secure and your password can be easily tracked (that's right, not cracked but tracked!) using telnet.
Use ssh. On Fedora systems it should be running by default. If it is not, it would definitely be listed in possible startup commands, where you can just enable it.
