Do yourself a favor and don't ever use telnet.

Install/setup SSH on your server/client and use that instead. Information about SSH can be found at and

There's also an SSH guide or two in our Guides Page at

i had a bunch more stuff wrote here, but joey posted quicker then me

To log into a linux box remotely , you use the command: "ssh -l username" as an example. If you want to connect to your linux box from a Windows machine, then I would recommend getting the program Putty, just do a search on google for "putty download" and it should be the first match.
