I used to use SecureCRT at my last place as we were licensed for it. But for my basic needs, I cannot justify the cost of the software.

It just doesn't install by default. You have to turn it on from Windows features.

Windows 7 Ultimate x64 and Home Premium x64

I purchased SecureCRT for myself, and even the older versions work fine for what I need. As for IPSec, that is well and good, although surprised that there are still people using basic telnet sessions business wise as the only other terminal based interface I have seen are the 3270 Telnet sessions which are not part of the basic windows Telnet Session.

Like I said, I use mine for
1). telnetting to a port to see if open
2). telnetting to a mail relay and trying to push a message through it to ensure it's working.

Other than that, for me, it's almost all SSH

Windows 7 home Premium 64 Bit

Windows features are not listed in the dialogue box of turn on or off windows features. Basically I want to activate the telnet port on my Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit machine. Also please advise on the pkgmgr and DISM features in case the telnet feature is not installed on my machine. Thank you.
