Re: telnet - connection refused in windows xp home

here is what i get (using my administrator 'privilege')
inetd --install-as-service

inetd does not show up in services

when I run

net start inetd

macro$ollar replies

The service is not responding to the control function --(must be some type of 
Orwellian monster!)

More help is available by typing NET HELPMSG 2186
