Hi,

You have to do two things here, one for your router, and for your Linux computer.
At the router it must allowed telnet connection through it, so if there is an access list on it you must modify it to allow telnet.
then you must start telnet service from service manager.

BYE...

Telnet uses TCP Port 23. Depending on the type of router/gateway that you use you would require to open that port on the router and also forward all incoming traffic on that port to the IP of the Linux box. In case you configure the Linux box directly with the Static IP that nothing needs to be done apart from running the xinetd service on the Linux box. Personally I think SSH (TCP Port 22) is a much better option for remote login since it connects securely (read encryption) over public networks like the Internet.
