When you post about problems like that, please be so kind and show how you have tried to troubleshoot the problem. Demonstrate that

* the talk daemon is enabled (show with 'chkconfig' and 'service' commands)
* show its configuration file and/or its xinetd config file
* it is listening on the correct port (use 'netstat' or 'socklist' or equivalent)
* no firewalls are active (show 'iptables-save' output)
* a network connection to the remove machine exists (netstat -nr ; ifconfig -a)
and works.
