Telnet client in Windows Vista

Guys, just for your info, Telnet is not installed with Windows Vista, but you can install it by following the steps below:

Click the Start button , click Settings, click Control Panel, click Programs and Features, and then click Turn Windows features on or off.

If you are prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.

In the Windows Features dialog box, select the Telnet Client check box.

Click OK. The installation might take several minutes.

You will then be able to get Telnet like in previous Windows.

Its a default security in Vista - do not install services/tolls that you will not use.

A good substitute for Windows telnet client is AbsoluteTelnet from Celestial Software. Not only does it support telnet as the MS client does, but it also supports SSH, which is a better security choice. It has lots of options, advanced security, and is translated into seven languages!
