Do you need telnet on your Windows 7 box?
Follow these simple steps to add the telnet command to your command line tools.
Click on “Start Button”
Click on “Uninstall a program (link)” in “Control Panel”
Click on “Turn Windows features on or off (link)” in “Programs and Features”
Click in “Windows Features” box and find the “Telnet Client” check box
Allow the system to install the appropriate files – should take only a few seconds to a minute or so.
To test the functionality:
Click on the “Start button”
Click on “Search Box” in “Start menu”
Type “cmd” in the “Search box” to bring up a command prompt
Type “telnet” and hit “enter”. You should now see the Microsoft Telnet> prompt
There you go. Easy enough.
P.S. If you can’t find the “Telnet Client” check box in your programs list, you may need to upgrade your version of Windows 7 to get these features.
