    Sorry I am not sure what you are asking here.

    Do you want to be able to access internal computers from externally or external computers from internally?

    If your asking about establsihing a telnet session from the Internet to your Server, I would say don't allow telnet from the Internet. It's a large security risk.

    If you need access from the Internet and internally to your lan use ssh2, not telnet.

    better still u can do the following for a telnet session.

    1. locate the telnet rpm on ur ISO
    2. install it wit the pm command.
    3 check from the xinetd and enable the session (quite easy)
    4. restart the xinetd service
    5. try login it the comand telnet <ipaddr>

    NB: u can telnet and use SSH in the session
