telnet is very insecure and should not be used
( except for the few exceptions where is still is useful)


use ssh instead it is encrypted !

just run telnet
it is most likely turned off ( if installed )
type into the terminal
Code:
telnet address.of.the.server 6775

telnet is plain text , unencrypted , that EVERYONE can read

it sounds like you want to capture the packets

then use wireshark

but telnet really is not used anymore
i only know of ONE!!! service still in use ( there are others but not many)
a service offered by NASA/JPL for orbital data of spacecraft and moons and asteroids and so on....

How to capture TELNET 3 session on linux

I know of plenty of.businesses that use telnet within their internal networks.

To the OP: I think what you are looing for is 'dsniff' or if you need a GUI, ettercap.
