Appendix E: Telnet Client and Telnet Server in Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2

Updated: December 16, 2009

Applies To: Windows 7, Windows Server 2008 R2

This appendix provides a brief description of the Telnet client and Telnet server features that can be turned on in Windows® 7 and Windows Server® 2008 R2.

For more information about Telnet, search Help and Support in Windows 7 or Windows Server 2008 R2, or search the following Web sites:

In Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2, both Telnet client and Telnet server features are available, although they are not turned on by default. These features can be turned on by an administrator (or a user with an administrator account) through Control Panel\Programs\Programs and Features\Turn Windows features on or off. Instructions for turning on the Telnet client are also provided in Help in Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2.

To prevent users from turning on the Telnet client or Telnet server, you can ensure that they do not have administrator accounts. As an additional step, you can use a script to check if Telnet.exe is present on a computer that is running Windows 7 or Windows Server 2008 R2.
