Command(s) to quickly disable VPN access on Cisco PIX 515e

I need to quickly toggle-off the VPN access on my PIX.  Admittedly, I work with the device so infrequently that I don't know the easiest/fastest way to do this.  I can telnet to the device without a problem and review the configuration.  I just don't know which command(s) to use to temporarily disable the VPN access.

I regret my ignorance with this issue, but any help would be appreciated.

    If you are using pptp you could type
    no vpdn enable outside

    if using an IPSec VPN (and you don't use site to site vpns also)
    no isakmp enable outside

    Or, remove the crypto map from the interface
      no crypto map <mycryptomap> interface outside
