You sure can - but you first have to have configured the VTY lines (in Cisco devices) to allow the router to accept telnet sessions. That would look somewhat like this:
Router(config)#line vty 0 15
Router(config-line)#password (your password here)
Without those lines configured, the router will reject any incoming telnet connections...
