Vendor specific option length: 0x04

Vendor specific option data: The data 0x00000002 instructs the client to disable NBT, lenght in indeed 4 bytes 00 00 00 02

So the complete Hex sequence shall be 01:04:00:00:00:02.

Also make sure that the follwing setting is configured onto Windows TCP/IP config:

Since i was formerly asking a question to the forum, i changed the question onto an answer and found usefull to publish this info for those who are interested.
