How to install telnet for Windows 7 [SOLVED]

I occasionally need telnet to login to a remote power switch at the Weblogs.us datacenter.¬†Frustratingly, Windows 7 ships with telnet disabled (or “turned off” in Win 7 parlance). Thankfully, with a bit of navigating around in Windows, it is simple to turn it back on: Start button Control Panel Programs (Programs And Features) Turn Windows features on or off Telnet Client (scroll down and check the box) Turn Windows 7 Telnet on (enable the feature) Click “OK” You¬†are all done
