Quick Fix : Enable Telnet Client through command line

I am sitting at a fresh install of Windows 7, and i needed to use telnet. I know i can enable Telnet through ‘Turn Windows Features On or Off’ but i wanted to know if i could do it through the command line.

The answer is yes i can.

From an elevated command prompt just type:

dism /online /Enable-Feature /FeatureName:TelnetClient

It seems to complete a lot faster than the ‘Windows Features’ gui as well.
