Disabling FTP in Unix
Posted on 2006-11-01
We're trying to keep FTP from listening on our HP UX system. We do this by commenting it out in services and in inetd, but after this happens we cannot establish a FTP (client) connection to another server. Are we doing this right? We want to be able to use FTP, but not have it listening on port 21.
Also, can anyone explain the difference between commenting out in services and commenting out in inetd.conf?
