    Hello,

    Okay, so I got SSH working, got a good client, but now I want to deinstall telnet... I know it is an RPM package, but how is it called on Linux-Mandrake 7.2 ?

    Thanks in advance,

    Leon

    I would not uninstall it. You never know you may need it later. I think it's better to just disable incoming telnet connections. To do that on a linux system:

    1. edit /etc/inetd.conf

    2. find the line that starts with "telnet stream tcp". it should be about 20 lines down.

    3. comment out that line by putting a # at the beginning

    4. save file and quit.

    5. restart inetd by typing "killall -HUP inetd"

    6. verify results by trying "telnet localhost". You should get "connection refused".
