Does anyone know a way to make an online telnet server like the starwars telnet?
You can just set up a relatively pure data-dumping routine listening on port 23. telnet is a pretty simple protocol, and normally the defaults are sufficient for something like the starwars ascii animation (if that's what you were talking about.)
Note that telnet is frequently blocked by firewalls.

that is indeed what i meant, something simple like that, but it is on a website (i have my own to test it on) i just wanted to know if there was a way to make one (possibly without some $$software$$)
So is your website linux based? Or something else?
For linux, I think you can get by with something as simple as putting a program that writes to stdout in your inetd or xinetd config files. You can use "chargen" as an example of what it should look like.
(Of course, this means you won't be able to have a normal telnet server on the same host, I think. I'm not acquainted with whatever multiple-address simulating features are available on *ix.)
it is not linux based it is XP (firefox). I'll go look all that stuff up and try to figure some of it out. here is a link to the page, there isn't mush on it, just a place where i can play around and try different stuff.
Look at "Services (Local)" under "Administrative Tools," part of Performance and Maintainence on the Control Panel. On my XP Pro, a Telnet server is already installed, though disabled by default.If the telnet port is blocked by your ISP (re: westfw's comment), you can probably use Port Forwarding on your router...
Unfortunately, the point is that you don't want to turn on the telnet service; you want to REPLACE the telnet service with your own app that does something different. That's easy on unix-like OSes, but I haven't a clue how you'd do it on a windows box.
You could presumably write your own app that listens on the telnet socket, and there is probably some sort of "wrapper" thing that will do that for you, but ...
I certainly don't want to enable telnet in XP ;-)...if it's not telnet servers we're discussing then I'll bow out (slightly confused...)
i know how to enable telnet and look at info online but i want to be able to make my own info and put it on a telnet server that can be on my website.

i have xp pro but i could not find a telnet server, my client is enabled (i can open telnet and use it to watch stuff online)
oh and i forgot there is a hidden game on the page that will let me access my junk from another computer. whatever you do don't go to the search section by clicking search on the main page, 2 of the links will redirect you to a rickroll. it is like a penalty kind of thing (like i said i just play around lol)
