    You can enable telnet but it's not a great idea. Telnet is completely unencrypted and a massive security hole. Remote work is generally done using ssh which is built into most Unix-like systems. It is similar to telnet but much more secure. If you want to connect from Windows you can use a free application called putty, it is a tiny download in the region of 60k if I recall correctly.

    Do you have a firewall running on the Debian box? Alternatively if you are behind a router you may need to forward the appropriate port to the Debian box.

    What is the exact error you get when you try to connect?

    Have you started the ssh daemon?
