telnetd is probably disabled - as it really should be.
Why would you want to use a insecure connection in favour of a secure one?

Can I ask - if you have ssh access then why are you even trying to use telnet? ssh provides a secure connection to the server. telnet sends everything you do, including your username and password, in clear text. You should use ssh wherever possible. Logging in to your sever as root via telnet is a really bad idea from a security point of view, all the more so if you're doing it over the Internet. I would advise you do not even have telnet enabled.

Basically because telnet servers aren't running by default as they aren't secure and you should use ssh instead
