I have a strange problem in Server I have some folders with Trademark TM

telnet sessions and not able to rename this from telnet session Please
suggest how should I solve the problem So that I could read special
character files from my Server(Linux box)

Try to use a wildcard in the name, e.g. if the dirname is
"anameT" (where T is the trademark symbol), try something

cd aname?

so the shell may expand it to anameT.

Check with
ls aname?
or better
ls -d aname?
if it is a directory, if you really only match the one
you want. If you get multiple matches with other files
with a sound name, you may move them out of the way
temporary by renaming them.

Hope that helps,
