telnetDid you know the old, good Telnet  in your Windows OS (all kind of Windows such as 10,8,7 etc) is full of interesting infos? Telnet is nothing less but a pretty unknown software nested in your Windows OS that lets you remotely connect to another computer/server and get any kind of information. All this thanks to special commands! I am about to start a list of posts that will teach you how to get different information from remote servers scattered around the world thanks to some, simple and easy Telnet commands. In this article I will show you how to get weather information of any city of your choice in a couple of steps! 

  1. Open Telnet.
  2. To achieve this, click the Start icon on the bottom left side of your screen and in the search bar, type Telnet.
  3. Alternatively, just go to the Control Panel and look for the Telnet icon.
  4. If you can not find it, it means that in your Windows 10,8,7 etc Telnet is turned off by default. To turn it on, just follow this other guide of mine, HERE.
  5. Once you have the black Telnet window on your screen, just type:  o   (yes, this is the letter “o” as in orange, without quotes!)
  6. Now, type: rainmaker.wunderground.com . After a few seconds a welcome message will appear saying that you are now connected to the Nation Weather Service.
  7. Now, press the 3 letters for your city (e.g.: New York=nyc) to get a detailed weather forecast for that city!
