How To Add "Telnet" to Windows 7/Server 2008 and up


Issue:

I'm trying to telnet to port 17520 to check connectivity between the Print Audit Client and the Communicator Service. Windows says 'telnet' is not a recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file.

Cause:

The telnet client doesn't install by default on new Windows operating systems.

Solution:

To install the telnet client:

Go to Control Panel --> Programs --> Turn Windows feature on or off"

Under Windows 7, locate the telent client in the list of Windows features, check it and click OK.

Under Server 2008, under "Server Manager", select "Features", click on Add Features, locate the telent client in the list of Windows features, check it and click OK.
