redhat 7.1

I'm having issues getting services such as telnet and ftp running on
redhat 7.1.  I enabled the services via /etc/xinetd.d and /etc/services
has the proper ports allocated to these services.  Looking at my active
connections with netstat -a I can see the line:
tcp        0      0 *:telnet                *:*                     LISTEN 

If I telnet or ftp to localhost it works just fine.  However, when I try
from another system it refuses my connection.  I checked my
/etc/hosts.allow and hosts.deny and both have no entries.  I added the
line ALL: ALL to hosts.allow and it still didn't work.  I'm kind of stuck
on where else to look.  Any suggestions as to what I might be overlooking?
