Is it possible to run MS-DOS applications via telnet on a Windows 7 system? Some applications we still use here were never ported to newer systems. Now the company wants to move the workstations towards Linux and have the old applications run on a Windows Server.
Yes. As long as the programs will run on the command prompt in the first place (don't do crazy stuff like TSRs or tap the serial port directly).
Also, FYI - if they are really simple you can probably just run them in Linux: DOSemu http://www.n0nb.us/ham-linux/linux/dosemuold.html http://www.dosemu.org/
