There must be some reason for you to want to connect on that port.
What is it?  Why is that port significant?

If the 'missing' package was installed using yum, try yum list from
each and compare the results.  However, if you don't know that you are
missing an application and just want to telnet for no reason, you are
chasing a problem that doesn't exist.

You can also check /etc/services to see if that is a standard port and
what may be using it.
