What you probably already have it sshd installed on freebsd,unless you said no 
at install, and while you can not use XP alone to connect to FreeBSD over ssh 
you can download putty ( to 
do this very simply.

Sorry to distract what you were doing, but try to avoid telnet as much as you 
can for network connections.
