Yup it shipped with it in c:\tcpip\bin, I think.

It would... or you could run it as a detached background job without
inetd -- like doing telnetd &

IIRC -- all configurable and it could use a Unix like password file... so a
little cut and paste and you had telnet and ftp services like a linux box.
(and time and echo and all the little TCP/IP servers were there...)
