I turned on ftp and telnet in inetd but when at telenet or ftp prompt
access is denied.

Can we see the error message? Are you sure inetd is running? Using the right
username/password combination?

In all honesty, you're better off enabling sshd instead, which encrypts your
communication, and offers numerous other security enhancements over plain
telnet and ftp.
