It’s not very often that I use telnet, but today I need it to fix some issues about my VMWare machine not being able to see the SQL Server running on the host and vice-versa. I can actually ping the machines and I’ve opened the port 1433 in the firewall for the SQL Server but still no luck..that’s where I felt like I could use the telnet client but no luck !
Here is how to enable it :
Turn Windows features on and off
Check Telnet client and hit OK
That should do the trick…but still no luck with my VMWare SQL connection 😦
Happy telnetting !
