Question about Computers & Internet
Telnet and ICMP can be disabled on specific interfaces by use of Access list commands. You will have to check the router configuration to see if any access list statements exist on the interfaces. They are usually applied to the serial interfaces, which is probably the reason why you could not telnet or ping directly to the router. If there are no access list commands then that means telnet was not configured in the first place.
To disable an access list command, you need to type the entire command with the word 'no' in front of it.
It is not recommended that you disable these features, as it will open your network up to possible attacks. If a hacker were able to telnet to your router and guess the password to login, you could be in for a whole host of problems that you are probably not ready for. Be sure that if you do enable telnet, that you use a very strong password for telnet access.

Telnet is an application layer protocol. If you can telnet to the other router, then you do not have any network issues. However, the fact that you can telnet but not ping suggests that icmp messages have been blocked in the configuration of one or both routers. This is a security feature, because attacks can be launched via icmp messages.
