unable to set telnet state

I set up a pc to my network and had it working. 1 month later my telnet connection won't work. I CAN see my network and when i use my laptop I can telnet. the user Claims to not have added anything, (right!) however I am unable to connect. I can however ping the address, which really is messing with my head. any thoughts

You what networking software you are running
Redhat linux and you upgraded to 7.1 it is
disabled by default. . . You really should be
running ssh instead of telnet. Telnet is
plain text and anyone with a port sniffer can
sit and collect the passwords from a telnet
session. . . Just some free advice.
