Stay away from telnet. telnetd has a lot of known problems. You should use the latest and greatest sshd from RedHat.

RedHat is a secure way for people to access your machine without the security concerns.

sshd is a useful unix utility that provides either public key or password authenticated secure connections between servers - replacing rsh/rcp for unix servers. Not only Linux but some of the unix variants also deploy them. I have checked Cygnus (Cygwin) also having it.
In case you wanted to install sshd :

sshd (The secure shell daemon) should be included with your installation media, and may in fact already be installed. Check:
whereis sshd

If not, check your install disks, in one of the RPMS directory.
