Have you opened the required ports on the firewall (serverside)?

Well, telnet is usually disabled by default on Linux because its a plain text (not encrypted ) protocol, so very unsafe.
Recommend you use ssh if possible, the usual solution.
If you really HAVE to use it, its usually controlled from the xinetd daemon, see /etc/xinetd.d dir.
Should have its own cfg file in there, set disable = no.
