Windows 7 as telnet server
1. Enabling telnet server feature under Windows 7
In Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2, both Telnet client and Telnet server features are available, although they are not turned on by default. These features can be turned on by an administrator (or a user with an administrator account) through Control Panel\Programs\Programs and Features\Turn Windows features on or off. Instructions for turning on the Telnet client are also provided in Help in Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2.
2. Increase maximal telnet server connections count
To set desired number of connection please modify next registry key
3. Each user could have own autologon script
You should modify file C:\WINDOWS\system32\login.cmd ( check registry key LoginScript in node HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\TelnetServer\1.0)
rem Default global login script for the Telnet Server
rem In the default setup, this command script is executed when the
rem initial command shell is invoked. It, in turn, will try to invoke
rem the individual user's login script.
rem Modification allows to have own autorun for each user
echo Microsoft Telnet Server.
echo Hello %USERRNAME%
echo To have autorun please modify (or create)
cd /d %HOMEDRIVE%\%HOMEPATH%
IF EXIST "%HOMEDRIVE%\%HOMEPATH%\autotelnet.bat" call "%HOMEDRIVE%\ %HOMEPATH%\autotelnet.bat"
After that, modify your autotelnet.bat in your user directory (for example add c:\dn\dn line to run DosNavigator on each logon).
If you have troubles with hot-keys usage, you could run telnet client in next way
telnet -t vtnt YOUR_SERVER_NAME
