Telnet server is not included on most linux distros as it is unsecured, it uses unencrypted passwords. The linux box will accept SSH connections, which behaves much the same as telnet, but it is encrypted. There is a free Window$ client for SSH called putty. Support for telnet was given up years ago on most distros. You can build it in, but SSH is by far a better idea.
