If you have SSH I can't think of a reason you'd need telnet. If you're on the stock Pogoplug OS you can enable telnet by doing the following:

mount -o remount,rw /
vi /etc/init.d/rcS
Find the part that looks like this:
if [ "x$cedebug" != "x" ]; then                                         
    telnetd                                                              
    /usr/sbin/dropbear                                                   
fi
and either delete the if and fi lines or comment them out.

Your rcS file may look a little different.
