Arg! the telnet client is disabled by default in Vista

I'm trying to fix my dad's website, after his gallery suffered a sql injection and his database is no longer with us. I needed to check if port 2077 was open on the server to map a folder as a drive on my windows explorer after a few problems with my ftp connection timing out.
To make the story short, how to enable the telnet client on Vista:
Go to Control Panel.
Go to Programs.
Go to Program and Features.
Click Turn Windows Feature on or off.
Check mark the telnet client.
