Very few systems come configured with telnet any more. Unless you have a really good reason (even then make sure you do actually have one) consider using SSH:

Hi alpeshprajapati,
install the package telnet-server and edit its conf: file /etc/xinetd/telnet. here make "disable = no". then save the file. after that restart xinetd. you will get a telnet server running. but since telnet is not secure enough, please use ssh instead.
