That's not rubbish even though it looks like. It's data send to the server
in a phase called "option negotiation". If you start a telnet on another
system (e.g. Linux) to connect to your nc server, you'll see the same.
It's triggered by either having no port given or if the port begins with

Hehe, no. MS telnet doesn't send the option negotiaton since it just
don't know about it.
