It’s not often that you use telnet, but sometimes it’s an easy way to see if you can connect to a computer.
In Windows 7 (and Vista), telnet is disabled as default due to the security risks, but here is a quick guide on how to enable it!
- Go to start.
- Control Panel
- Programs and features
- Turn Windows features on or off
- Check Telnet Client
- Hit OK
Now you are ready to start telnet from your cmd!
