Disable TELNET
« on: March 23, 2008, 07:28:34 PM »
Hi,

I want to disable telnet for my Linux box running on WHM/cPanel. Can anyone guide how can I disable it from the server? Obviously I want to disable it for security reasons.

Thanks,

Andrew

To disable telnet, SSH into server and login as root. At command prompt type the below command:

pico -w /etc/xinetd.d/telnet

change disable = no to disable = yes

Save and Exit the file and then type below command:

/etc/init.d/xinetd restart

Hope this will help you.
