SPUG: Net::Server question

Hi All,

I wrote a general perl server engine using "Net::Server::PreFork" module.
When I run this script on some server, any client can connect to it
through telnet and interact with it.

Now I have a problem with Windows telnet client.
Problem is Windows telnet client by default wont do local echo.
So the user wont know what he types until he hits return key, at that
point I print the value back to the user.

My question is how can I set Windows client's local echo property from my
script ?

This module uses Sockets, so how do I set the local echo through this.

Please let me know if any one knows answer for this, I am stuck with this.
