Post Remote Linux Access

I am looking to connect to my Linux box from remote (my work place using WIN2K). I know about the telnet command but it is apparently not activiated/configured. Is there something specific that I need to do to activiate this server? I am running DNS routing so I know that I can connect to it. Matter of fact I can run a VNC session, however since VNC uses X I can not do everything I want to concerning my graphics card. The error I am getting is:

Could not open a connection to host on port 23

This would indicate that I do not have the server running, but since I am a Linux newbie it is hard for me to be sure (or know where to get telnet). However I am not sure if port 23 is unblocked on my router and am eliminating possible problems before I return home.
