There is a (unsupported) windows distribution on www.gromacs.org
Download and install, and you're ready. You can generate .tpr files
anywhere, and feed them to mdrun on the MS-win machines.

You can enable the telnet client (called 'service' in NT or win2k), but
be sure to shield outsider access! (telnet isn't particularly secure, and
I would definitely not trust the MS implementation), so you might want
e.g. a firewall to stop telnet access from outside your own network).
