Apparently, Solaris 10 uses some type of centralized management console to administer starting services? You can no longer comment out things in inet.conf because mine is empty!?!?!

So how would I go about disabling telnet and ftp in Solaris 10? I have to use the Sun Management Console center or something right?

Thanks

The correct way to disable these services, is to run these two commands

svcadm disable telnet
svcadm disable ftp

To list info about services, use the following command:
scvs -a

You will be flooded with info, so better would be to grep for what you are interested in, eg

svcs -a | grep ftp

The two man pages which applies to this are svcs and svcadm, but also have a look at initadm's man page for a more complete view.
