Netopia 4686XL is allowing Telnet from outside

Last Modified: 2013-11-22
I have a Netopia 4686XL that I manage through Telnet from a local workstation.  I have found in the logs, then confirmed from an outside machine, that I can also log in through telnet from the outside.  I want that to stop.  But I cannot find the menu on where to block this option.  I was thinking of just changing the port ot something else, but would rather not as I just want to change external ability to log in.
