I enabled the Telnet Server feature in Windows 7 SP1, and after 20 reboots later and some pinging find it is simply not working. I cannot ping port 23.. but Windows Firewall says the Incoming connection for "Telnet" is open.. does anyone know any why to get this working? Thanks :)
For the sake of troubleshooting, it might not hurt to temporarily turn off the Windows firewall, then Avast (or any other antivirus.) Might not hurt to do this on both sides of the connection either.
Also keep in mind that you can't ping a port. Use
Check to make sure the telnet service is running under
