tip : don't use telnet it transports password and other stuff in PLAIN TEXT, use ssh , it's already installed with red hat, /etc/sshd/sshd.conf and change #Protocol 1,2 to Protocol 2.

the solution is

shutdown -h -t: now

it will halt the system -t (time) now

man shutdown

This is assuming you are running ssh or telnet on the server and that the firewall isn't configured to block those ports. Usually by default ctrl-alt-del sequence is configured gracefully reboot.
