Accessing Linus from Windows

I can get to Linux machine from windows XP using ftp but telnet won't let me into the box.

What could be the problem?

If telent doesn't work, what other comm program can I use?

You likely have ssh configured on the linux machine by default. Try using an SSH client to connect. A good one for windows is PuTTY:

or you may have a firewall enabled to block telnet/ftp on the Linux server.
