Can't Telnet to an ASA firewall using SecureCRT

At my workplace, we have a few ASA firewall connected to our network.  My boss wants me to set one up for SNMP, so we can keep track its CPU usage, memory usage, and traffic via Cacti software.  In order to do this, I know I have to console into the firewall an make some changes to the configurations.

My problem is this: When I try to telnet into it using SecureCRT, it times out.  But, when I open command prompt and try to telnet, it connects, and asks for a password (this would be fine, but I don't know the password, since all our devices use RADIUS so we can use our own login info). Can anyone help me out?

edit: This might be of some use, I took a screenshot of Wireshark's output while trying to telnet.  The green lines appeared when I tried to connect to it in a web browser, the black lines appeared when I went through command prompt, and the grey lines appeared when I tried to use SecureCRT.

Telnet works on port 23 and via SecureCRT you are trying to connect on port 22 (SSH). You should have change the port to 23 before initiating the connection. See the screenshot below:

I hope that would help

Thanks, that helped me a lot.  Turns out, I just had to go to the connection's properties and change it from SSH to Telnet.  Didn't even know that existed.  Again, thank you.
