Disable Telnet Access

Telnet should be disabled, and you should use SSH. Telnet sends password in plain text, and ‘crackers/hackers’ can obtain these passwords easily compared to SSH, and then takeover your dedicated web server.

1. Login to your dedicated server via SSH as root.

2. Type: pico -w /etc/xinetd.d/telnet

3. Change the disable = no line to
disable = yes.

4. CTRL+X then Y then enter to save the file.

5. Restart xinted.
Type: /etc/rc.d/init.d/xinetd restart
