It sounds like telnet has not been enabled by the inetd or xinetd daemon.

Ensure that the telnetd serivce is starting in /etc/inetd.conf - or that the relevant telnet confiugration file has been created if you are running xinetd.

Running a man page on any of these will provide you with the information on what to do.
