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?
