Telnet issues connecting to Windows 2008 Server RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I have a windows 2008 server that I wish to telnet to from a windows xp sp2 machine.

    I get the following error when trying to connect 

    Failure in initializing the telnet session. Shell process may not have been launched.

    on the Windows 2008 server I can find this error in the logs

    Error in creating CMD Proces. System Error:Access Denied.

    My domain account is in the administrators group and also in the telnet clients group. If I log on to the server and issue telnet localhost I can connect using my domain account without issue. This only affects remote clients.

    I have followed the following document and have triple checked all settings are correct

    Has anyone seen this before or can anyone give me a new way forward to resolve this?
