With Windows7 taking over for previous versions, you may find that ‘telnet’ is not enabled/installed. These steps should help get it enabled again.

1) Click on Start then right click on Control Panel

2) From Control Panel, click on Programs

3) Under Programs and Features, click on Turn Windows Features on or off

4) From the Windows Features window, using the slider, scroll down till you reach Telnet Client, select the checkbox beside it, then click on OK

You should now have telnet installed and ready for use.

** Once it is installed, the Windows Features windows will be closed.

To confirm that Telnet is installed, open command prompt and type telnet /?
