  2. Open the MPLAB® Harmony Configurator (MHC) in the MPLAB X IDE:
    • Go to Tools > Embedded > MPLAB Harmony Configurator.
  3. Expand the following selection tree and check the 'Use Telnet Server' box:
    • Go to Harmony Framework Configuration > TCPIP Stack.
  4. Click the Generate Code icon (top of the MHC window).
  5. Open the app.c file (found in the Projects window in the Source Files/app folder).
    • Locate the App_Tasks() function.
    • Add the TCPIP_TELNET_Task() function at the end of the App_Tasks state machine.
