Did you actually add the pkg for the telnet server? Also, realize that 
port 21 is the default listening port for telnet, so if you thought that 
the open ports displayed is out of the ordinary, it's not really unless 
you changed the listening port. Have you tried telnetting to yourself (ie 
telnet localhost)?
