If it really comes down to it, its probably /usr/sbin/in.telnetd

Or, you can fiddle with whatever GUI configurator for services redhat has these days... its in there too.

Really though: secureshell. If you want to log in from work and don't have an ssh client and this is a win32 machine; look into puTTy, just type "putty" into google and take the first hit.

How is your box connected to the internet? ISP? If the ip
address is assigned dynamic, it going to be deficult.

Frist use ssh not telent you can find a client for windows here:

Redhat installs a firewall, by default I believe telnet is turned
off , unless you told it otherwise on the firewall setup screen during install

That being said the command are as follows:

telent your_domanname

with SSH:

ssh -l username domainname

or you can specify a hostname.domainname
