In order to set up the router to allow Telnet access, use the line vty command. This command allows for the configuration of Virtual Terminal (VTY) lines for remote console access. You can configure the router to accept one or more Telnet sessions. It is strongly suggested that you configure password checking with the login and password line configuration commands. The example below configures the router to accept five sessions, with the password "letmein":

Router-2(config)#line vty 0 4
Router-2(config-line)#password letmein

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

Also make sure that port 21 is not blocked by any access-lists and that telnet traffic is permitted though the vty interface.  For example I block telnet on my vty interface by using "transport input ssh".  You should have either "transport input all"(may not display if it's set to this on some versions of IOS), or have it set to "transport input "telnet".  If you have configured your router through the web interface I doubt this is the issue.  If you post you config we may be able to help you better.

In the world of WAN, QoS is a pretty important topic for most, if not all, networks. Some WAN technologies have QoS mechanisms built in, but others, such as some L2 WAN's, don't have QoS control in the provider cloud.
