By default, CentOS does not enable an ftp, telnet or rlogin server. In
addition, it also restricts connections to those ports in the firewall,
unless you changed that during install.

The best way to enable access to your machine is to run the
system-config-securitylevel command and allow connections to the SSH port.

PuTTY is one example of an SSH client that runs on Windows. You can use this
program to connect to your CentOS machine (after you have done the above).
