Telnet on a 2821

I recently purchased a few new Cisco 2821s, and I'm having a really hard time setting up my telnet access. The standard "config terminal, line vty 0 4, password my_password , login" described in my CCNA book isn't doing the trick. I can ping to and through any of the ports that I have assigned IP addresses, but I can't get in via telnet by either ip address assigned, receiving "Connecting To XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX ..Could not open connection to the host, on port 23: Connect failed. " What do I need to do in order to get this working?

You also must have an enable password set before telnet is permitted.

Obviously enable secret is preferred.

If you are still having difficulty post the config with passwords removed and internet addresses fudged (say change the first octet).

Can you ping the addresses that you are trying to telnet to?

Here's the config changes I just applied, which are basically identical to the original set up I had:

(config)#line vty 0 4 (config-line)#transport input telnet (config-line)#transport output telnet (config-line)#password (config-line)#login (config-line)#exit #write memory

I do have an enable password set as well.

I would have loved to make changes on this earlier in the week, but this turned into a production unit and I couldn't afford to mess anything up.
