how to install/configure telnet server in windows server 2016 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi All,

    Could any one help me ,

    I have installed win 2016 Tech Preview 5. I wanted to install telnet server on it. I couldnt find it in "add roll and features", i found only telnet client on it.tried to enable telnet server by cli but failed.

    Here the log


    C:\WINDOWS\system32>dism /online /Enable-Feature /FeatureName:TelnetServer

    Deployment Image Servicing and Management tool
    Version: 10.0.14342.1000

    Image Version: 10.0.14342.1000

    Error: 0x800f080c

    Feature name TelnetServer is unknown.
    A Windows feature name was not recognized.
    Use the /Get-Features option to find the name of the feature in the image and try the command again.

    The DISM log file can be found at C:\WINDOWS\Logs\DISM\dism.log

  • Does not surprise me telnet sever is not in server 2016 as it is old technology and not secure. I do not think it will be included.

    PowerShell has remote access, so look into that as an alternative. After enabling you can use PowerShell ISE it has a New Remote PowerShell Tab... option on the File menu.

  • Hi,

    Thanks for your post.

    As far as I know, Telnet Server feature was not included in Windows server 2016 Tech Preview 5, so we could not install this on it. Please wait for the later updates and official announcements for Windows Server 2016.
