The causes are fairly obvious: either you don't have telnet running, or the connection is being blocked by a firewall/security program. Chances are, telnet isn't running, because it's a VERY insecure program, and shouldn't be used. Use putty to connect via SSH. Have you checked your Ubuntu system? Is telnet running? SSH running? Check with "sudo service ssh status", start it if needed with "sudo service ssh start". Same for telnet, although it probably isn't, since it's OLD and INSECURE.
