How to enable telnet on Windows Server - it can be a handy connectivity / trouble shooting tool

Since Windows Server 2008, the telnet function has been disabled by default. Use the following to enable telnet from a command window:
1. Open a cmd window, preferably with elevated permissions.
2. Run the following command:
pkgmgr /iu:"TelnetClient"
3. The telnet function should now be enabled.
