    Do you have iptables running? The iptables firewall could be blocking telnet connections.

    To expand on that, type "service iptables stop" and try it again (don't leave it off, just for test). If it works, it is iptables. Also, as telnetd would be run through xinetd run "service xinetd status" and ensure it is running.

    Ssh is by default configured
    check your setting

    # default: on
    # description: The telnet server serves telnet sessions
    # unencrypted username/password pairs for authentication.
    service telnet
    {
    flags = REUSE
    socket_type = stream
    wait = no
    user = root
    server = /usr/sbin/in.telnetd
    log_on_failure += USERID
    disable = no
    only_from = 192.168.1.1 127.0.0.1 192.168.1.2 ..................example

    }

    !wq
    save the file

    then restart the
    # /etc/xinetd/ restart

    or
    # service xinetd restart

    # chkconfig xinetd on
    # ping 192.168.0.1

    if you are having still problem then check the network interface card is not configuring properly.

    for testing
    #ifconfig
    if you want to configure the interface card
    then the command is
    #ifconfig eth0 down
    #ifconfig eth0 192.168.0.1 netmask 255.255.255.0 up
    then check the connectivity
    #ping 192.168.0.1.
