Telnet is an old “Internet protocol used on the Internet or local area networks to provide a bidirectional interactive communications facility. Typically, telnet provides access to a command-line interface on a remote host via a virtual terminal connection which consists of an 8-bit byte oriented data connection over the Transmission Control Protocol (TCP). User data is interspersed in-band with TELNET control information.” (Source Wikipedia) Due to security reason such a feature has been disabled in Windows Vista and Windows 7.
