We use the telnet exit programs which we downloaded from the IBM techstudio web
site.  You can find them at
http://www.as400.ibm.com/tstudio/tech_ref/tcp/telex/telexdwn.htm

The exit programs offer much more security since you have the option of 
accepting
or rejecting sessions based on the originating ip address.  Of course, if thats
not a need, you can just allow *.*.*.* and the whole world can connect.  Another
function allows you to log information on each telnet session which attempts to
attach to your server.  You can also assign a device name to each session in
place of the generic qpadevxxxx names ibm uses.

We implemented the programs "as is" and are very happy with the results!
