This morning while trying to do some troubleshooting via one of my windows 7 testing machines I noticed that they have disabled telnet by standard as they did in vista it seems. I’m sure this is due to Microsoft trying to make windows 7 more secure. So I thought I would quickly post up how to re-enable it for anyone wishing to do this but isn’t fully up to speed with windows 7(although guess if you need telnet you should be already but anyhow)
- Go to Start
- Control Panel
- Programs And Features
- Turn Windows features on or off
- Tick the box for Telnet Client
- Then click the OK button and it will be installed for you.
Hope this helps someone 🙂
