The instructions are at <> (just a short
click away from the Cygwin home page, with the link named "Problem
Reports" -- I don't know how much more obvious you can get).  You posted
through the web interface at Nabble (which is not associated with Cygwin).
You might want to do some lobbying for them to include a link to the above
instructions.  And while you're at it, please tell them to allow posting
attachments using their web interface.

The default use is of whatever telnet app is in the PATH first.  That is
not a problem -- that is expected behavior.  The problem was that you were
missing the inetutils package, as Brian pointed out.  You could've
searched for "bin/telnet\b" on the package search page at
<>, or via "cygcheck -p", to get this
information yourself.
