Although we rarely or maybe not using telnet anymore, Microsoft Windows 7 developers haven’t removed it yet in their operating system. Unfortunately, it is disabled by default. This is also true with the Windows Vista OS. That’s why you’re maybe seeing the same error as below:
So, to enable telnet on Vista or Windows 7, follow the steps below.
- Click Start
- Control Panel
- Programs And Features
- Turn Windows features on or off
- Check Telnet Client
- Click OK
- Viola! You can now use Telnet via Command Prompt.
That’s it! By the way, are trying to configure a Huawei Wimax Modem BM622? I’m just wondering why you need the telnet command.
