Re: how do I disable people telneting into my mail server
Telnet, in the context of this thread, refers to using a telnet client to connect to a TCP service port, not the insecure practice of telnetting to to a telnetd daemon for shell access.

Was there anything in my post that made it sound like I didn't know that? I telnet to specific ports all the time to verify the firewall is not blocking it.
User complaining about port probes. Then people go on a tangent about him knowing or not knowing how to telnet into his own server. That is the context for my comment about that not being a good idea. Use SSH for server access, not telnet.
Keep using telnet for server access - I don't give a shit. LOL
