On my Windows 2008 server, I am unable to execute the telnet command.

Can someone please let me know how can I check if I have access to a particular port on another machine.

Telnet command will not execute because you don't have the telnet client installed.

Under features simply add it then you will be able to use it.

Is telnet enabled?  Look here for info on that:

also it is always adviseable in W2k8 to "Run as administrator"

In Server 2008 you have to enable the telnet client

Control Panel - Turn Windows Feature on or OFF - Add features - Telnet Client

Alternatively, you can use various scanning tools like nmap (command line)  or zenmap (gui) to scan open ports on remote computers.

The other option is to use netstat on the computer you want to check this will display listening ports.

I use:

Netstat -ano

This provides it in a bit easier to read format.
