Windows 2008 and FTP services

I don't have IIS or see any ftp service running in services, nor do I see anything FTP related in Roles or Features on my Windows 2008 server.
Yet I can go to the admin dos prompt and type in FTP and get an FTP prompt.
How do I turn this off?

Your Windows 2008 server is likely not running a FTP server.

When you access FTP from the DOS prompt you are accessing the client mode only.  It is similar to using telnet from the dos window.

I do not think you can disable the FTP client built natively into DOS.

... well you could remove or rename ftp.exe but, yeah, that is the command line client... anyone unauthorized that has access to that has already compromised the system.
