If you are running the latest firmwares TELNET can be disabled via the JetDirects Embedded Wed Server (Other Settings page).

Since you have telnet enabled by default the webpage is probably enabled by default.  Launch a browser and go to the IP address of the printer, go to the other settings page, then disable telnet.

Depending on which version/driver you're using you may not see the same things I am seeing.  Just look around through the page(s) try to find the option to disable TELNET.

You havent specified what HP Printer you have, but if it has a JetDirect network interface with a reasonably updated firmware,, I recommend you to download and install the HP WebJetAdmin package. Beware of long URL:

http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/DriverDownload.jsp?pnameOID=13039&prodTypeId=18972&prodSeriesId=27905

This package should give you management access to the printer (and any other printers you might have on the LAN) and allow you to turn off Telnet-service, FTP, protocols etc.etc.

DO NOT DISABLE/REMOVE SNMP IF YOU USE ANY JETADMIN PRODUCTS!!! These products rely heavily on SNMP for operations.

I realize that WebJetAdmin might be overkill for your question, but with so little information provided it should cover most eventualities anyway.

Hope this helps.

The 4050N Model should work well with WebJetAdmin. Please let us know how it works out.
