In general, there's a telnet server running by default on Linux
'ps -aux|grep telnet' will show you either 'in.telnetd' or 'telnetd'
running. If nothing shows up, then you don't have a server running.
You can either put an entry for telnet in inetd.conf, which controls
the services running on the machine and will automatically start a
server when it detects a request on the telnet port, or else you can
start a server yourself.
'man inetd' for details on configuring the automatic startup.
It depends on what distribution and version of Linux you're running,
can you supply more details?
