Cannot telnet to a Linux machine using ip address

I have tried connecting to Linux machine from my Windows machine via command line tool:

telnet xxx.xx.xx.xx

where xxx.xx.xx.xx is Linux machine's ip address

The error I get is:

Connecting To xxx.xx.xx.xx...Could not open connection to the host, on port 23:
Connect failed

What do I do?

Is port 23 listening on the Linux machine? Is there firewall running on it?

netstat -ant

Open in new window

telnet is usually disabled. Try to use ssh rather, which is secure.

please see commands related to linux in the link below for enabling telnet.

Always use Putty tool to connect linux box
Telnet protocol is working on port no. 23

I agree use putty but try ssh instead of telnet. See if that works.
