Telnet tool breaks the smoothness of the course

Guys, I'm having a hard time installing Telnet on my Windows 10 machine. I tried many options, the teacher's notes included but nothing help me. I had to use a workspace and it was giving me lots of options, I had to try some to see what's what I need. I think the video should say, use workspace, please. other options might disrupt the flow of the course.

Hi Braulio Garcia you can install it via running the command dism /online /enable-feature /featurename:telnetclient in cmd or PowerShell. The command is different to the one you see in the video, to connect to a hostname, type open <hostname> <port>, for example open httpbin.org 80
