Telnet Client allows a computer to practically connect to a remote Telnet Server and run application on that server. A Telnet is an Internet standard utility & protocol based on Request for Comments. This RFC specifies a method of transmitting & receiving unencrypted ASCII characters across a network. This characters are plaintext but not the HTML or other codes. One can use Telnet client running on one computer to connect to a command line based session to run applications. Telnet Client supports only text based interfaces but not the graphical interface.
Both Telnet Client and Telnet Server features are available in Windows 7 but they are not turned ON by default. So one who is willing to use Telnet server on his operating system should manually turn on this feature on his PC.

1. Click on the Start button and then proceed to Control Panel.
3. Select Turn Windows features on or Off.
