Windows 10 Telnet error; "could not open connection to the host on port 23 connect failed windows 10"

I have installed Telnet Client on Windows 10, but when trying from CMD;

telnet it is giving me this error,

"could not open connection to the host on port 23 connect failed windows 10"

I saw a lot of tutorials where it tells you to enable the Telnet Client feature from the programs and features, then go on services and enable telnet. But apparently when I open the services Telnet is not listed. So that I cannot enable Telnet. Is it normally in Windows 10 that telnet does not work ? Maybe there is a command and I am missing it ? Firewall is OFF and I was using the default Firewall. My setup is Windows 10 trying to Connect to Windows Server 2016. Everything is into Virtual Machines, but the machines itself ping between each other.

Any ideas please?

You forgot to install the Telnet Server, it's one checkbox below the Telnet Client (usually).
In your example, you used this is the Windows Server, where you install the Telnet Server. Firewalls on Server also usually DO NOT automatically open the ports of the services you install, so check that after Telnet Server is installed.

I only Have Telnet Client in the Programs and Features. There isn`t Telnet Server.
Actually, Telnet is such old technology, it's probably never coming back. I think you're looking at older manuals.
Last time I saw it was in Win8. And that's already a few years ago.
Please try newer technologies to get the features you want, like Powershell and such.

I agree with the above, but also try the following:  open cmd.exe with Run as Administrator and then try telnet. Does this work.

Although CMD was in administrator mode it still don`t work. Are there any tutorial how to run telnet from powershell please?
JohnBusiness Consultant (Owner)Commented:
telnet is a  valid command in Powershell (I just ran it).

Open Powershell and then run telnet.

You may need to use Netterm (not free).
