Enable Telnet in Windows 7

From time to time I still like to use telnet. It can be nice for troubleshooting and if you want to see if an service is running on a specific port. So, recently, I was annoyed to find out that Windows 7 (and Windows Vista) doesn’t include telnet by default.

So, here’s how to enable it.

1. Start
2. Control Panel
3. Programs And Features
4. Turn Windows features on or off
5. Check Telnet Client
6. Hit OK
