Problem while using telnet in windows

By syedraoof ·
Hi All,

On my host machine windows xp sp3 have configured vmware and installed guest os linux 4 with the different ip addresses for both host and guest os. Both are pinging well but while connecting from windows to linux using telnet service i am getting this kinda error

Error: Connecting to HOSTNAME/IP... Could not open connection to the host, on port 23: Connection failed

Can someone please tell me what could be the possible reasons.
