Telnet in windows vista?

Looks like the telnet client isn't installed by default with vista.

Try typing telnet from the command line. D'oh!

Fix? Start >> Control Panel >> Programs >> Turn Windows features on or off

Find Telnet Client in the client list, check the box to install and click OK.

Now from the command prompt, telnet works as expected.

Don't install MS telnet. Try AbsoluteTelnet instead.
