How do you know it's not running already?

open up the command prompt and type

telnet localhost or telnet 127.0.0.1

Or you could check the task manager and see if the process is there

..Um..Neither one is working. It says in the command prompt that it is an unrecognized internal or external command.

What happens when you just type telnet in the command prompt?

it says "telnet is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program, or batch file"

Telnet is an open text protocol. Everything you do is in plain text, even passwords. Set up a SSH server. Same thing but encrypted.

Yeah, should have said that before :P

Windows Vista removes telnet from the default install.

Putty might still work though.

Telnet is still an important tool for non-shell activities such as MUDs, viewing ASCII StarWars, and General Human-Server Text Communication...

Wow I am glad I read this. I was thinking of putting vista on a laptop. I think I might stay up with the XP.

They don't seem to have. The few times I have tried vista I have found the lack of Telnet or SSH a major irritation.

Hmm...that is kinda strange.

It is on the install disc though right? Is it in the windows components bit when you add/remove programs?

You need to install it seperately after setup:

Control panel -> Program and Features -> (on the side panel) Turn Windows features on or off -> in this list you can enable Telnet again.

So it's not completely gone, if you still want it ;)

When you say telnet is 'unsecure' because it sends everything in plain text,

what does somebody do in order to get the data if it is not sent to them ?

What do you mean? Are you talking about what to do if the intended recipient did not receive the data or are you talking about someone trying to MITM?

If you can run Putty, it's easy to start a telet or ssh session.

Putty is only a client though - you want an ssh server - does Open SSH run on Vista? - I expect it will.
