I activated the Telnet client in Windows 7 and was instantly able to connect to servers although Windows Firewall is activated.
How does that work? Shouldn't the firewall block outgoing connections until I explicitly allow them?
Is a default firewall rule being created when you activate the telnet client in Win 7 and if so, which firewall rule should I look for?
I was unable to find any rule in my firewall for telnet.
Disclaimer: This is not really a problem I am trying to solve. I am just trying to understand how telnet is able to communicate without me opening the firewall for the program.
