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. If you wish to turn on and enable Telnet in Windows Vista and Windows 7, here is what to do.
- Click Start.
- Click Control Panel.
- Now, go to Programs or Programs and Features.
- Click Turn Windows features on or off.
- In the Windows Features dialog box, tick Telnet Client check box.
