Welcome to LQ.

Do you mean how with the client or server? With the client:
telnet <i>host port</i>

With regards to the server I would strongly reccomend upgrading to ssh for security then just add multiple "Port" lines to sshd_config.

Thanks for some help

I know how to telnet to a different port. My question was how to configure or open
a different port besides the default one so I can telent to it like so


telent hostname 5555

You would need to run a telnet server on the other port. Check your particular server's docs for how, but for remote access you're certainly better off running sshd rather than telnetd or similar, as david_ross has suggested.
