Telnet Packet Cluster Setup Information

Since most modern Browsers no longer support running a Telnet session from within the browser, most users will want a Telnet Shortcut Icon on the Windows Desktop screen.

  • CDXA supports (2) Packet Clusters (K4MD ARCv4 & ARCv6) & W4DXA ARCv6).
  • To Create a Desktop Shortcut Icon to run the K4MD or W4DXA Packet Cluster:
    • First you have to enable Telnet as the default is disabled in Windows Vista, Windows7 and highter.
    • To Turn Telnet ON: (1) Click on Start Menu >> Control Panel >> Programs and Features. (2) Click on Turn Windows Features On or Off. (3) Check the Telnet Client box and click OK. (4) A dialog box appears, confirming the installation of new features. After installation is complete, close the main Programs and Features Control Panel applet. The telnet command should now be available to create a shortcut.
    • Right click on your PC desktop. • Move cursor over New, then click on Shortcut.
    • In the shortcut box
      for W4DXA ARCv6 type: telnet://
      for K4MD ARCv4 type: telnet://
      for K4MD ARCv6 type: telnet://
    • Click Next
    • In the ‘Select a title for the Program’, type: K4MD Packet Cluster or W4DXA Packet Cluster.
    • Click Finish
  • This completes the desktop shortcut. You should now be able to double click the new shortcut and connect to the K4MD or W4DXA packet cluster.
