Well, you have to have a valid login and password to start with.

There are several things that could be wrong.

1) You could have an invalid IP adress
2) A firewall might be running blocking telnet
3) The server you are trying to connect to might not have telnet service running

Yes. You need telnet running if you want to telnet into the telnet port of your own computer. Most computers/servers use SSH now rather than telnet.
