Easy way to install Telnet on Windows Server 2012

Sometimes you need that Telnet for testing if ports are open 🙂

  1. Open a command prompt window as Administrator.
  2. Type the following command: pkgmgr /iu:"TelnetClient"
  3. Use Telnet.exe e.g.: telnet -a 1434

That is easy!

BTW port 1434 is for SQL Browser Service...
