What's the message error, maybe the other host is not
running inetd with telnetd enable, did you try to telnet to
other host that you know provide telnet login services ?
Can you reach other hosts ? .i.e ping them or contact
them for example via finger rlogin daytime etc ...
Is it a DNS problem ? Is the other hosts running inetd
or somesort of telnetd serer standalone ?

Well, is not telnetd that lets you telnet to another session
when you are already in a telnet session.  When you contact
a host via telnet Protocol, assuming you have a running TCP/IP
stack and you can reach the other host via ping etc ...,
inetd(on the remote host) will answer an spawn a telnetd session for you.

A running TCP/IP networking stack, The berkeley socket API and 
terminal capabilities.

I'm not sure if this a OS(pSOS) problem or you have
misconfigure your OS, in any case your best bet
is to consult your local pSOS networking guru.
