First, make sure ssh is installed

yum -y install openssh-server openssh-clients

chkconfig sshd on

To start, stop and restart ssh
/etc/init.d/sshd start | stop | restart

From a linux client with ssh installed,
ssh ACCOUNT_NAME@SERVER_NAME

Why would you want to use telnet?  Unless you're on a local trusted and secured network, it's completely insecure.
chkconfig telnet off
