How to enable Telnet and TFTP Client on Windows 7 and Windows 8

Like at Windows Vista, Windows 7 and Windows 8 don’t enable Telnet and TFTP Clients in installation.

To enable them, open Control Panel > Programs and Features > click Turn Windows features On or Off in left side > enable Client Telnet  and  Client TFTP then click in OK.

I not tested in Windows Vista yet, but the process can be same.

See you soon!

  1. Due to the lack of security, it is dangerous to use it over the Internet. Thus, TFTP is generally only used on private, local networks.

  2. You may also need to let the TFTP client through the firewall in order to receive the reply from the TFTP server.

    1. Open “Control Panel”
    2. Go to “System and Security”
    3. Under “Windows Firewall”, select “Allow a program through Windows Firewall”
    4. Click “Change Settings” (may require UAC elevation)
    5. Select “Allow another program…”
    6. Select “Browse…”
    7. Type in “C:\Windows\System32\TFTP.EXE” and click “Open”
    8. Click “Add”
    9. Check the boxes for the networks where you want to allow TFTP
    10. Click “OK”
