    Which version of Windows are you using?

    To get to Telnet, you can use various methods. The most common is via Start | Run and type in TELNET

    Are you just wanting to connect to a remote PC?

    First off, the Telnet service has to be running on the computer you want to contact. I know that for W2K, the Telnet service is not running as the default. For W2K or XP, open up services and find the Telnet service and see if it's running on the computer you're trying to contact.
