Telnet to access LINUX workstation

I have configured my PC as a LINUX workstation and is connected to network.
When I telnet from another PC (WinNT),
there is no reaction at the terminal emulator but it was successfully connected .... how am I going to prompt for user name and passsword when somebody telnet in. I have just added the username and password.

Pls advise on what shall I do next?

Thanks.

Have you tried another terminal-emulator? Putty.exe is good.

Also give a better description of the problem. No text in the terminal-emulator window?
