Spell out your words.
And if you want to know how to enable Telnet, how about telling us what version/distro of 'linux based os' you're using? Most of the time, you can edit the /etc/xinetd.d/telnet file, and change the DISABLE from "YES" to "NO", then enter "sudo /etc/init.d/xinetd restart". But that's only if you have telnet installed, and if you don't, that file won't be present. To install it, we again need to know what version/distro of Linux
Also, be aware that telnet is VERY insecure, and should be avoided at all costs. SSH, which comes installed on pretty much every Linux distro, is much safer.
