Have you made any useraccounts on the win2k ?.
I'm pretty sure that if you make a useraccount on the win2k, you will be able to log in the telnet session with the username and password.

I just looked through the help topics and found these two items, which might relate to your problem.

1. If User Must Change Password at Next Logon is set for a user, an attempt to log on to the Telnet server fails when NTLM authentication is used. The user must log on to the server directly and change the password, then log on through Telnet.

2. Error: NTLM has failed to authenticate due to insufficient credentials.

Cause: The user tries to connect to another computer using clear-text authentication, but the default is set to NTLM-only authentication.

BTW help topics seems pretty good:
start | help | index | telnet server

Hope this helps

If you run the telnet configuration program (available through the Administrative Tools menu) you can turn on clear text authentication (it can be done through the regsitry too).  The default install will only accept NTLM authentication and most Telnet apps can't do NTLM authentication (only the one that comes with Win2K can as far as I know).

Just cancel the NTLM in the Telnet Server Administration in Administrative Tools and the Telnet will allow any registered user to remotly access the station.
