Wwhile I'm writing this I am installing again from cygwin setup. That's taking quit a while, I guess it's a full installation and not just an update... is there a quicker way to install updates only?

I use the telnet client included in the cygwin package. I did not quite understand how another telnet client should solve the problem. I looked for an inetutils package in the cygwin setup but find none. Can you please explain specifically what I should install and from where?
