to launch the VLC with telnet interface, the command is:
./vlc --intf telnet
./vlc -I telnet

so something like:

[00000257] main interface: creating vlm
[00000257] telnet interface: Using the VLM interface plugin...
[00000257] telnet interface: Telnet interface started on interface 4212

should be appear.

So in anoter shell you need run a telnet program, with:
telnet <host> 4212
the password is: admin

I hope this can help you.
