If you are using telnet to test and troubleshoot services you will be “surprised” that telnet is not installed by default.

C:\Users\>telnet
'telnet' is not recognized as an internal or external command,
operable program or batch file.

To to enable it back follow this procedure:

  1. Go to Start – > Control Panel -> Programs -> Turn Windows Features On and Off
  2. Check Telnet Client and click OK (See screenshot below)
  3. After a while it is ready
  4. Enjoy
