Telnet timeout error from a serverA to a serverB

Solution Verified - Updated -

Issue

Access to serveB via telnet from serverA is slow or denied. Examining the file  /var/log/secure  there is a consistent delay from the time the login is presented to the time the session is actually created this could lead to a timeout error.
