Well, I'm a real unix admin. And the only time I use telnet is when manually connecting to a service to verify it works (read smtp, pop, www, etc...). Why use telnet when ssh is there? I mean really, the overhead on ssh is so small on a modern machine, why run telnet at all?

My point in posting this was not to ilicit a flame war over sec. I use both telnet and ssh. Somethimes a telnet is perfectly suficient withing a highly secured net..

This was merely a post to let people know how to shut off that feature...
