If you are like me, you are used to going to a Windows command line and telnetting to a host. I was flustered when, in Windows 2008, I typed telnet and just got an error message. So, how do you install Telnet in Windows 2008 Server? Either use the 'Initial Configuration Tasks' screen or open Server Manager by going to Start -> Administrative Tools -> Server Manager. From there, click on Add a Feature. You want to add the Telnet Client. This will get your CLI telnet application working again.

If you want to use command line options, use the following commands:

Command line to install telnet server:

start /w pkgmgr /iu:"TelnetServer"

Command line to install telnet server:

start /w pkgmgr /iu:"TelnetClient"
