do mean i have to start a telnet session to a target without installing anything like a telnet server like winshell?I dont know about winXP having a built-in telnet server or anything that will take connections from port 23...do U mind sharing m8?

I used to work with winshell and it works, bad thing is AVs can detect it...so i thougth i could use some help with winXP built-in utility.
