Likely, this relates to the telnetd trying to reverse map the connecting IP address. Check that it will reverse map, and if no other way if available maybe put an entry for the host in /etc/hosts. This is a common problem with sshd, so I'm just guessing that telnetd might behave the save? In any case, if nothing else is in the way, you might consider using ssh instead of telnet.
