Make sure you have openssh-server RPM installed, if not install it first from 
the Redhat CD, or if you already have / want to setup up2date account, then 
you can do:

$> up2date openssh-server

Then run the sshd service

$> service sshd start

make sure it runs the next time your machine reboot:
$> chkconfig sshd on

Do all that as root, of course.
If you have IPTables running, disable all that first to make testing easier. 
Now try ssh-ing from another machine. If that works, you can re-enable your 
iptable but just make sure you allow Port 22 to get in.

Ditch telnet. You don't need it, it's insecure and it's old. SSH can do 
everything telnet can, and more. 

For Window SSH client, try PuTTY.

Hope that helps.
