The telnet server allows only one connection

This is ‘by design’. The telnetd of FREESCO can only handle a single client connection at a time.
NEVER enable the telnet server in worldwide mode over the internet unless you don't care about the lack of security.
(did you know that the telnet protocol sends the root password as readable text over the (hostile) internet link?)

Installing the OpenSSH add-on package will allow you to login as many times as you want AND in a secure way. Additional bonuses of OpenSSH are the once-you-know-it-can’t-imagine-living-without-it port forwarding/tunneling capabilities. Higly recommended!
